Rathcline Club Notes 19th April 2015

posted 19 Apr 2015, 13:29 by Rathcline Public Relations Officer

50/50 Draw – Congratulations to young Liam Rhatigan, Carrowstrawley, who was last week’s winner of €375 in the 50/50 draw. The draw is proving to be hugely successful as we have local winners regularly. This is our main source of income which is needed to pay off our big loan repayments. The draw takes place every Monday night at 9pm and envelopes only cost €2 and are available in all local businesses.

Division 2 – Our second league game of the season takes place the May bank holiday weekend. This will be our first competitive game of the new season in Clonbonny. We face Ardagh on Saturday May 2nd at 7pm. For the latest fixtures and results please see our website www.rathcline.gaa.ie Fixtures and Results section.

Longford GAA Annual Punchestown Race Day – The Longford GAA 13th Annual Punchestown Race Day will take place Wednesday April 29th. This has proved to be a very popular annual event. Tickets are priced at €110 and include four course meal, hot afternoon refreshments, admission, race card, celebrity, tipster, bookies in pavilion, bar facilities and music by Busy Fingers. Anyone interested in attending please contact Gerard Farrell on (086) 8745180.

Topaz Cash For Clubs – With only three weeks to go until the closing date for the Topaz Cash For Clubs we urge everyone to get their cards filled up. 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.

Sympathy – The club would like to extend our sympathies to the Hanly family, Lehery, on the recent death of Pee Hanly. RIP.
