Rathcline Club Notes 20th September 2015

posted 20 Sep 2015, 12:39 by Rathcline Public Relations Officer

ACFL Division 2 – After our success last weekend in the championship we are back focusing on league action next Saturday evening as we take on Sean Connollys in Maguire Park at 5pm. With a chance of still getting promoted, the upcoming league games will be very important as we look to climb back up to Division 1.

Leinster Quarter Final – As intermediate champions we will represent the county in the quarter finals of Leinster where we will play the winners of Wexford or Louth away on Sunday November 1st. Please keep an eye on fixtures closer to the time for confirmation of team and venue.

50/50 Draw – Congratulations to Lee Cullen, The Green, who was last week’s winner of €470 in our 50/50 draw. The draw is proving to be a huge success but as always we need your support. It’s almost a year since the draw began and we will have given out over €20,000 in prize money in the year. Envelopes are available in all local businesses and only cost €2.

All Ireland Football tickets – Congratulations to Terry McLoughlin who was the winner of two premium level tickets to the All Ireland football final. Thanks to everyone who bought and sold lines.

“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. This time for white collar boxing which will take place on Saturday November 14th in St. Faithleach’s grounds. The first training session will take place next Friday night at 8pm in the boxing club which is located in the Co-op hall.

Club Merchandise – Anyone who would like to order some Rathcline merchandise to have in the next few weeks can do so by contacting Lorraine Farrell on (087) 6827966. Kid’s navy hoodies, adult zip up tops and adult t-shirts can be ordered. We’ll now be competing in Leinster so still time to wear the Rathcline gear! Some zip ups, t-shirts and car flags are still available in Joe O’Briens.

Sympathy – At a time when the town was in celebration mode following the championship win tragedy struck as we learned of the death of Ruairi Wyse. Ruairi was in the prime of his life aged 37. On behalf of the entire club we would like to extend our sympathies to all the Wyse family and his many friends. R.I.P Ruairi.
