ACFL Division 2 – Our new season begins next Saturday evening March 21st when we face our neighbours Killashee in Clonbonny at 5pm in the league. We look forward to the new season with optimism and hopefully it can be a successful season for everyone involved. We urge everyone to come out and support the lads in their first outing of the year. Best of luck to all involved for the coming season. For the most up-to-date fixture information please see our club website www.rathcline.gaa.ie Club Fixtures and Results section.

50/50 Draw – Congratulations to Stella McKearney, C/O The Yacht Bar, who was the lucky winner of €490 in last week’s 50/50 draw in The Yacht Bar. A few lucky few weeks for the McKearney family with Malachy winning our draw two weeks previously! The draw continues every Monday night at 9pm and envelopes are available in all local businesses for only €2.

All-Ireland Club Final Tickets Draw – Congratulations to Colm Morgan, Hanley's Marina who won the premium level tickets for the All-Ireland Club Finals on St. Patrick’s day. 2nd prize of €50 went to Jim Brown, Cloontuskert. 3rd prize of €50 went to baby Zoe Nutterfield, Edenderry. Thanks to all who bought lines.

Topaz Cash For Clubs – Topaz have announced a new initiative for clubs and communities. When you spend €40 or more on fuel you collect a stamp. These cards and stamps are available in all Topaz stores nationwide and Cullen’s XL is our local one. Once your card is full with stamps you can return it to Cullen’s or to a member of the Rathcline executive with your club name written on it. The cards will then be returned to Topaz for a draw on May 15th where the prizes are as follows: 1 club will win €10,000. 10 clubs will win €5000. 140 clubs will win €1000. Every club thereafter will receive €250. We would ask everyone in the community to try and get involved and you can also get friends or family around the country involved collecting for our club.

Strictly Come Dancing DVD - If you missed our great night's entertainment and our amazing dancers or you just want to relive the night again, then why not get your hands on the DVD of the night! DVDs are on sale in O'Brien’s, Adie’s and St. Faithleach’s clubhouse priced €15.

Membership is now due for the coming year. With our first game of the season against Killashee next Saturday evening March 21st, it’s compulsory that all players are registered before this if they want to play. Players’ registration fee is €50 and non-playing members is €20. Players are asked to pay their registration to Brendan Rhatigan or James Hanley. Non playing members can pay their fee to Peter Skelly or Denis Crinigan.

Longford U21s – Best of luck to Liam Connerton, Shane Kenny and Eoin Sorohan with the Longford U21’s who face Dublin in the Leinster U21 semi-final on Wednesday 18th March in Navan at 7.30pm. Also to Gareth Johnston is who is a team selector.

Notice to all players - Could all players please refrain from kicking boots off the walls at the clubhouse in Clonbonny. The FAS men do great work helping with the upkeep of our facilities and it's very disappointing to see their good work undone.
