Rathcline Club Notes 22nd March 2015

posted 22 Mar 2015, 14:31 by Rathcline Public Relations Officer

Division 2 league game – Our Division 2 game against Killashee fixed for last Saturday was postponed as a mark of respect to the late Pauline Rhatigan. Please keep an eye on fixtures for confirmation of this rescheduled game.

50/50 Draw – Congratulations to Luke Dowd - Corrigeen, who was the lucky winner of €405 in last week’s 50/50 draw in Clarke’s. The draw continues every Monday night at 9pm and envelopes are available in all local businesses for only €2. So far we have given back nearly €9000 to the community since mid-October. We hope this draw continues to grow as is it our main source of income and a great chance for people to win a substantial amount.

Longford U21s – Hard luck to the Longford U21’s who were beaten by Dublin in the semi-final of the U21 Leinster Championship last Wednesday. The club were well represented by Liam Connerton who scored two goals on the night, Shane Kenny and Eoin Sorohan along with selector Gareth Johnston.

Topaz Cash For Clubs – Topaz have announced a new initiative for clubs and communities. 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.

Strictly Come Dancing DVD - If you missed our great night's entertainment and our amazing dancers or you just want to relive the night again, then why not get your hands on the DVD of the night! DVDs are on sale in O'Brien’s, Adie’s and St. Faithleach’s clubhouse priced €15.

Membership – A final call for club membership. It’s compulsory that all players are registered before they play. Players’ registration fee is €50 and non-playing members is €20. Players are asked to pay their registration to Brendan Rhatigan or James Hanley. Non playing members can pay their fee to Peter Skelly or Denis Crinigan.

Longford GAA Cookery Demonstration – Longford GAA are hosting a Cooking Demonstration by Viewmount’s head chef Gary O’Hanlon on Monday 30th March at 7.30pm in the Longford Arms. Tickets are available for €20 and anyone wishing to purchase a ticket can contact Gerald Farrell on (086) 8745180

Sympathies – The club would like to extend our sympathies to the Rhatigan family, Fermoyle on the death of Pauline following illness. To Brendan, Michael and Andrew we would like to extend our deepest sympathies. RIP.
