Rathcline Club Notes 26th April 2015

posted 26 Apr 2015, 15:38 by Rathcline Public Relations Officer

Division 2 – Our second league game of the season takes place this Friday May 2nd at 7.30pm in Clonbonny against Ardagh. This will be our first competitive game of the new season in Clonbonny. After our win over Kenagh in our first game we hope to continue with our good start. It would be great to see a large crowd turn out to support the lads. For the latest fixtures and results please see our website www.rathcline.gaa.ie Fixtures and Results section.

50/50 Draw – Congratulations to Nuala Cosgrove, Killashee, who was last week’s winner of €354 in our 50/50 draw. The draw is proving to be hugely successful and since mid-October we have given almost €11,000 back to the community. This is our main source of income which is needed to pay off our big loan repayments. The draw takes place every Monday night at 9pm and envelopes only cost €2 and are available in all local businesses.

Longford GAA Annual Punchestown Race Day – The Longford GAA 13th Annual Punchestown Race Day will take place this Wednesday April 29th. This has proved to be a very popular annual event. Tickets are priced at €110 and include four course meal, hot afternoon refreshments, admission, race card, celebrity, tipster, bookies in pavilion, bar facilities and music by Busy Fingers. Anyone interested in attending please contact Gerard Farrell on (086) 8745180.

Topaz Cash For Clubs – With only two weeks to go until the closing date for the Topaz Cash For Clubs we urge everyone to make a final push to get their cards filled up. 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.

Gates of Clonbonny – It is imperative that the gates of Clonbonny are closed after any use of our facilities to prevent livestock entering on our pitch and causing significant damage both physically and financially. Can all members please adhere to this request.

Sympathy – The club would like to extend our sympathies to the Connerton family, Longford Road on the recent death of Pat’s brother Tony Murphy from Moydow. RIP.

Ladies Club

Seniors – Well done to the senior ladies who had a great win over Colmcille in the league on Sunday morning in Clonbonny. The game finished with a score line of 2-15 to 0-05 and it was great to see the girls all playing so well with such confidence. Keep it up girls!

U16’s – The U16 team play Ballymahon/Forgney this Thursday April 30th  at 7pm in Clonbonny.

U12’s – Well done to our U12 team who had a great win over Mullinalaghta last Wednesday evening in Cashel.

Clothes collection - The clothes collection continues for the ladies club. Anyone who has old clothes they wish to dispose of please contact Madaleine or Mike on 086 4046174.
