The club held its first executive meeting on Friday night last and they want to highlight the following points from the meeting:


The club would like that this draw would reach and exceed €500 weekly and we are asking your support to achieve this goal. You can do so by buying a blue ticket in any local shop or bar.

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

Your support for the draw in much appreciated.

On Monday night 13th February, the 50/50 draw took place in the Peer Inn. The Rathcline 50/50 draw winner was Pam Farrell, Derrygeel. Pam won this week’s pool of €418.

Team Manager

The committee announced the appointment of Kevin Hanley as manager of the Intermediate team for the coming year. The club would like to wish Kevin and his management team the very best of luck for the coming season. We also hope that every Rathcline player will make themselves available for the Intermediate Championship, Division 2 league and Cup 2 competition.

Bus to U21

Longford Co Board are hoping to run a bus or two to the Under 21 Championship game in Kildare on Wednesday 1st March. We have two representatives on the U21 panel Kevin Sorohan and team captain Shane Kenny. It is very important that the club is well represented at the game and give our players they best of support. Contact Longford county Board officee to book your seats.


Membership of the club is now open and we would earnestly ask everyone to become a member of the club. The membership is €20 for general members and €50 for playing membership. Peter Skelly and Denis Crinigan are the registrars and they will accept and receipt your membership.

Brendan Rhatigan is the registrar for the players and all players are asked to meet with Brendan as soon as possible.

Defibrillator Training

It is essential that we have people competent in the use of the defibrillator at the club grounds at all times during games and training. We would encourage parents and supporters to register for the upcoming Defibrillator training course. As we all remember from a few seasons back the value of the defibrillator and someone with the knowledge of its use so it is important that we have people available in Clonbonny for all our games fully up to speed with its use. You completing in the training can be a matter of life and death hence the need to ask you to sign up. Register your name with Joe or Martina O’Brien

Shannon Gaels

The Strength and Conditioning under the guidance of Joey Horgan is proving to be a great success with big numbers attending. The U14 indoor training in the Hall on Friday nights is also attracting great numbers. Thanks to all parents and young people for their efforts.
