posted 2 Aug 2016, 06:24 by Rathcline Public Relations Officer

At the time of writing the first round of the Senior Championship is scheduled to take place next weekend. As of yet there is neither venue nor Date set and it will be made known after CCCC meeting on Monday night. We urge everyone interested in the parish of Rathcline add the club to come out and support the team at the weekend. It will be our first time back in Senior Championship and the first game in the championship is always vital to secure victory in.

The 50/50 last week went to Derryhaun where the winner was Dawn Egan. Dawn won €335 in the draw that took place in the Yacht Bar.

Did you know that you can pay your 50/50 for the full year? All you do is contact any of the committee and they will step you through the process if you are away from home and for the homebirds you can pick up a pick envelope and fill it out. For your €100 you will in the draw for the 52 weeks thus getting 2 free weeks. Blue €2 envelopes are avail available in all local shops.

The Bernard Keane SuperValu Galway race day is almost upon us and we encourage anyone that has not yet made their booking to do so immediately as the numbers of places still remaining are very limited. The Race day is Monday next 25th July and do not get disappointed by late booking only to find the occasion booked out.

for the cost of €110 and for your money you will receive free admission as well as a race card, free parking, a seating and viewing area located in the new Killanin stand overlooking the finishing line with spectacular views, there will be tipsters in the Pavilion, tote facilities, a beautiful 4 course meal, €5 drink voucher, there will be an opportunity to be declared the Best Dressed Lady and there will be after meal entertainment.

The minor club will host a Table Quiz in the Peer Inn on Friday night week 29th July at 9pm. The club would love to welcome a huge number to the Peer on the night and we would encourage every club member to gather 2 or 3 others from outside in order to maximise the number attending.

The Cúl Camp in Clonbonny will take place from Monday next 25th to Friday 29th July. This is always a wonderful week for all the young boys and girls, full of enjoyment and sport and a week not to be missed. Bookings can be made on the Longford GAA website – click on the Cúl Camps icon on the home page or contact Damian Sheridan, Longford GAA or Tina Dowd, club chairperson. The fee for the week is €55 for the first child, €45 for the second and €40 for the third and fourth.

Our U10’s will play a blitz in Grattan’s on this Wednesday and the Under 12s are back in action on Thursday evenings.

The club congratulates and commiserates with Denis Connerton and players Liam Connerton and Shane Kenny on the marvellous run themselves and Longford took us through over the past few weeks. It was a shame that the run had to come to an end against Cork on Saturday.

Cemetery Sunday – fair play to our chairman Pat Deasy and his wife Angela for providing tea and buns in the clubhouse following the ceremonies in Clonbonny on Sunday.

Well done to all our club members that acted as stewards at the triathlon on Saturday last.
