This is a hugely important course due to the fact that all adult club teams MUST have an Award 1 coach involved since the start of 2016 and by the start of 2018 all adult Club Head Coaches/Managers MUST be award 1 qualified so we believe that this course will attract a lot of interest and we expect it to fill up quickly

Hard Luck to our U21 team who went down to the Cashel/Killashee amalgamation in the first game of the U21 Championship. The next round will take place on October Bank Holiday weekend when they take on Mullinalaghta.

The senior and minor club would like to wish John L Farrell a long and very happy retirement. The club would like to thank him for his great work over the last 24 years.

AGM The Rathcline AGM will take place in the clubhouse on Sunday 27th November.

The annual New Year draw tickets will be on sale very soon and the club encourages everyone to support. The draw will take place in Clarke’s Bar on Sunday 1st January 2017.

On Monday 10th October last the 50/50 draw took place in the Clarke’s Bar. The very winner of the €416 prize was Tomás Rhatigan, c/o The Yacht Bar. As you will have noticed over the past number of weeks the jackpot has remained over the €400 mark and this is solely due to your support. With the run up to Christmas €400 is a fine amount to receive and encourage everyone to keep playing and hopefully you will be one of the lucky winners. The blue envelopes are on sale locally at local shops and from club members and they cost only €2 each. Alternatively, you can opt for the pink envelope for €100 and that has you in the draw for 52 weeks. The club really appreciates your mighty support each week.
