Rathcline Club Notes 29th January 2018

posted 31 Jan 2018, 04:48 by Rathcline Public Relations Officer


The club will hold its AGM on Saturday 17th February in the clubhouse at 6pm. The club had a very good year culminating with a wonderful victory in the Intermediate Championship. Off the field the club had a good year also. To help continue the success of 2017 and create a growth in 2018 the club would like to encourage anyone that has an interest in the development of the club both on and off the field to come along to the AGM. The club is looking forward to seeing a great number at the meeting.

Mark Fallon Good luck to Mark Fallon and his Multyfarnham team mates in the All-Ireland Junior Final in Croke Park on Saturday.

Death: The Rathcline club would like to extend its deepest sympathy to the O’Brien family, Clonbeg, Buncrana on the death of Danny O’Brien. Danny was a prominent member of our club during the historic victory of the club’s one and only Senior Championship. Danny was not only as selector with that team, but he was also the sub goalie. Danny gave the club a huge amount of his time during his stay on the Rathcline Road. He also was an excellent coach to our underage teams and to Lanesboro Vocational School where he was a teacher. Danny was full of positivity and was always encouraging and developing a great sense of well being amongst pupils and players. Danny was predeceased by his daughter Miriam. The entre club would like to extend its deepest sympathy to his wife Isabel, his children Diarmuid, Michael, Margaret, Shane, Danielle, Jennifer, Susan and Emmet and we share with them in their sadness.


On Monday night 22nd January the 50/50 pool stood at €300 and the winning envelope drawn in the Adie’s Bar was in the name of Ann Kenny, Newtowncashel.

Tickets are on sale locally at €2 each. Alternatively, you can by the pink ticket for the year for just €100 and have 2 free weeks. The club would like to thank everyone that continues to support the draw on a weekly basis and also the many people that buy the one-year ticket.

Not too long ago the pool each week was nearing €500 and we would encourage you to get your weekly blue envelope and help drive the weekly amount back to where it should always be.

Your support is much appreciated.

Sympathy: The club would like to extend its sympathy to the Gillen family, The Green and the Johnston family, Curreen, Rathcline Road on their recent bereavements.
