Rathcline Club Notes 1st November 2015

posted 4 Nov 2015, 11:18 by Rathcline Public Relations Officer

Leinster Intermediate Championship Quarter Final – On Sunday we made the long trip to Killurin, Co Wexford for our quarter-final against Glynn-Barntown but unfortunately we just came up short by a point. After a strong courageous performance it wasn't to be our day as we were beaten 1-10 to 0-12. Thanks to all our loyal supporters who made the long journey down and to Glynn-Barntown for their wonderful hospitality. Best of luck to them in the semi-final of Leinster against Athlone.

Division 1 Promotion/Relegation Play-off Final Replay – Another big game for the club next weekend as we have the replay of the Division 1 promotion/relegation play-off final against Fr. Manning Gaels. The two sides could not be separated a few weeks ago after extra-time and now it’ll all happen again next Saturday evening in Killoe at 8.30pm. Again we would ask for all supporters to come along and support the team in what will be one of the last few games of a long season.

Intermediate team of season/player of year – Check out this week's Longford Leader for details on how to vote for Intermediate team of the year and Intermediate player of the year. With so many great performances from Rathcline players this year it would be great to have some of them on the team of the year and with a chance of winning player of the year. Get voting now.

“Battle of the Bridge” White Collar Boxing – Following on from last year’s successful Strictly Dancing Over The Bridge we have teamed up with our neighbours St. Faithleach’s again for a White Collar Boxing Weekend Special. On Friday November 13th there will be a kiddies disco from 7pm – 9pm. This will be followed by the band Shaken Edge who will perform from 10.30pm until late. Then the main event of the weekend takes place on Saturday night at 8pm as boxers from Rathcline and St. Faithleach’s fight against each other in the white collar boxing. All locals are busy in training for the event and we can expect some good fight action on the night! Following the boxing there will be a DJ until late. Then Sunday at 2pm sees a tractor run take place followed by evening entertainment from 6pm – 8pm by Matt Cunningham Ceili Band. The whole weekend of entertainment will take place in a marquee in St. Faithleach’s GAA Complex. A weekend of entertainment to suit all tastes and not to be missed!

50/50 Lotto Draw – Congratulations to Fiona Ginty, Carraroe, who was last Monday’s winner of €340 in our 50/50 draw. This was Fiona’s second time to win the draw. The draw takes place every Monday night and envelopes only cost €2. The draw is one of the main sources of income for the club so your support is vital.

Yearly Subscription 50/50 - Our 50/50 draw which started a year ago has proved to be very successful. We have given away over €21,000 in prize money since the draw began. We are now giving people who live abroad or away from town the opportunity to be in with a chance of winning and supporting our Leinster campaign. After a 10 year wait we are now County Intermediate Champions and on the road to Leinster. A yearly subscription will include membership for the year along with a chance of winning an average weekly prize of €400. Your support would be greatly appreciated. Please contact any member of the executive or email us at pro.rathcline.longford@gaa.ie if you're interested in subscribing.

125th Anniversary Celebrations – As the club is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year there will a special concert held on Saturday December 12th in the parish hall celebrating the occasion with lots of local talent on show. Rehearsals are now on-going. The drama act on the night is called “The Dressing Room” and it’s not to be missed!

Baby joy – Congratulations to our club treasurer Stephen Rooney and his wife Valerie on the recent birth of their baby girl Anna.
