You can still become a member of Rathcline GAA. For just €20 you can become a member of the club which will be an acknowledgement of support for your club.

On Friday evening last we played Dromard in the leader Cup in Clonbonny. Unfortunately, there was a small crowd there to see a great open game of football. Nobody got too far ahead and when it looked as if it might happen each team was pegged back. It was a very entertaining game and one that our young team dug deep to hold onto Dromard and dug deeper to go ahead and with a few minutes remaining looked like winning but in the end the game finished in a draw.

This was a tremendous performance by the team and one that proves that the talent is in the team and that things are coming together for the championship. Dromard is one of the most respected teams in the county noted for playing hard and fair and it was great to see our gutsy team standing shoulder and showing the depth of their courage in playing for each other.

We look forward to the coming weeks with a great relish and confidence.
