50/50 Draw – Congratulations to Ryan Guinan who was the lucky winner of €437 in last week’s 50/50 draw in The Peer Inn. The draw continues every Monday night at 9pm and envelopes are available in all local businesses for only €2.

Padraig Potts’ Guide To Walking – Thanks to everyone who attended the play Padraig Potts' Guide To Walking on Saturday night. It was a great night filled with laughter. Thanks to everyone who donated prizes for the raffle, to everyone who sold tickets and to everyone who helped out with the organisation of the event.

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.
