On Monday night 6th March, the 50/50 draw took place in the yacht Bar. The Rathcline 50/50 draw winner was Mary Feeney, Rathcline Road. The winning pool on Monday night was €402.

The club thanks every one of you for your continued support and your support means that we have a healthy winning amount every week. If you have not yet taken part in the draw we would encourage you to do so and help boost the winning prizemoney and support the Rathcline club and who knows it may be your turn next week.

Blue weekly tickets €2 each are on sale in all local businesses and yearly pink tickets are also available costing €100.


The club has entered two competitions and it will also take part in the junior championship later in the season. We are asking every player past and present to contact Kevin Hanley or any of his team management or Chairman Liam or Secretary Cathal on his intention to turnout and create a wonderful spirit in the club. There are a lot of players that in recent time that have retired or have pulled away for one reason or the other and we would love to welcome them back for a bit of fun on the playing field.


The trip to Punchestown is a great day out for Longford Football. This year we hope that we can gain support from all local racing aficionados and those interested in a great social day out to the Annual Punchestown Festival on Wednesday 26th April 2017 in support of Longford GAA. Rathcline will be entering its usual table and we are looking for support and we hope that we can fill 2 tables -20 people.  Anyone interested should contact Liam Connerton, Albert Cooney, Gerard Farrell or Cathal Chapman.
