posted 20 Dec 2015, 08:36 by Rathcline Public Relations Officer

New manager - The club are delighted to announce that Enon Gavin has been appointed as the new senior manager of Rathcline for 2016. Enon is from Clann na Gael in Athlone. Joining Enon's management team are David Kilcoyne and Lee Cullen. We wish you all the very best of luck for 2016.

Dinner Dance – To celebrate the success of 2015 the club will be holding a dinner dance in the Radisson Blu Athlone on Saturday 23rd January. The players will be presented with medals on the night and our two cups will be on show. Tickets are priced at €35 which will include the meal and music afterwards by the band 4Degrees West, followed by DJ Tommy K. A great occasion this promises to be for all parishioners.

New Year’s Draw – Our New Year’s Draw will take place on Saturday 23rd January at the Rathcline Dinner Dance in the Radisson Blu hotel in Athlone. Prizes are as follows: 1st prize - €1500, 2nd prize - €750, 3rd prize €500, 4th prize €200, 5th prize €200, 6th prize €200, 7th prize €100 and 8th prize €100. Tickets cost €10 and are available now from executive members and other ticket sellers. With the move to senior football next year, the club will need even more income so it’s crucial again to make this draw a success.

50/50 Draw – The luck of the Dowd’s continued on Monday night last as Tina Dowd was the lucky winner of €387 in our 50/50 draw for the second time. Tina previously won €360. The draw continues every Monday night at 9pm and envelopes only cost €2.

Yearly Subscription 50/50 - Our 50/50 draw which started a year ago has proved to be very successful. We have given away over €24,000 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 the club. A yearly subscription costing €100 will include membership for the year along with a chance of winning an average weekly prize of €400. The first date for the subscription envelopes to be rolled out will be Monday 11th January. 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.

Recruitment drive for referees – With a serious shortage of referees in the county the county board are looking to recruit new referees with a training programme to begin in the new year. This is open to male or females between the age of 16 and 35 and it is not limited to those who play or have played football. Anyone with an interest may apply. The opportunity may arise to go on and referee at county level in the future. Please contact any member of the executive as soon as possible if you are interested in becoming a referee.

Christmas wishes – Finally we’d like to wish everybody at home and abroad a very happy Christmas from everyone at Rathcline GAA.
