posted 3 Jan 2016, 11:33 by Rathcline Public Relations Officer

Dinner Dance – In just under three weeks we will see the return of our long awaited dinner dance. The event will take place in the Radisson Blu Hotel Athlone on Saturday 23rd January. The players will be presented with medals on the night, along with player of the year awards and our two cups will be on show. Tickets are priced at €35 which will include a 4 course meal and music afterwards by the band 4Degrees West, followed by DJ Tommy K. A great occasion this promises to be for all parishioners. Tickets are available from executive members or from Joe O’Brien’s. This promises to be a great night where we will celebrate the success of last year.

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 this year, the club will need even more income so it’s crucial again to make this draw a success.

50/50 Draw – Congratulations to Anna Kenny, Fermoyle, who was last Monday’s winner of €410 in our 50/50 draw. The draw continues every Monday night at 9pm with the draw on January 4th taking place in the Yacht Bar.

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.

AGM – The Annual General Meeting of Rathcline GAA will take place on Sunday January 31st at 5pm in the clubhouse. We are hoping that there are people within the parish who would be willing to take on some positions within the executive.

Local Talent Concert – On Saturday 13th February the club are putting on a talent concert which will include some comedy sketches along with some other great talent acts. It promises to be a great night’s entertainment not to be missed!

Longford GAA – Well done to Denis Connerton and the Longford team of which James Carroll made a substitution appearance in their win over NUI Maynooth in the O’Byrne Cup today. Best of luck against Westmeath on Wednesday and next Sunday against Wicklow. Also we had Shane Kenny and Kevin Sorohan representing Longford in their Hastings Cup win over Wicklow on Saturday. Best of luck to them against Leitrim next weekend.
