Ladies Championship Final 2013 – Our Senior Ladies drew the Intermediate County Championship Final with Mostrim last Saturday evening in Ballymahon on a final score of 1-04 a piece. Both teams were severely hampered by the adverse weather conditions on the day with Rathcline playing with a number of injury laden players. It is expected that the Final Replay will take place on Saturday 21st September with venue and times yet to be decided. A two week break for the team is timely and hopefully the team will be back to full health for the next meeting with Mostrim. It also gives Mike Greene a chance to recover some sleep before the nerves take hold again in the build up to the replay! We wish Dara McGann the very best in her recovery from her recent illness. The Ladies Club would like to thank the Rathcline support contingent for coming to the match in the dreadful conditions. We appreciate the support and hope to see you all again in two week’s time.

All Ireland Football Final Ticket Draw – €2 raffle tickets are readily available and are in circulation around the parish for a chance to win 2 Premium Stand tickets to this year’s All Ireland Football Final between Dublin and Mayo on Sunday 22nd September. The draw will take place this Thursday night 19th September in Adies Bar at 11pm. All completed cards should be returned to any member of the Executive in advance of draw.

Minor League Final – Our Minor team looking to complete the double this coming weekend (after already claiming the Minor Championship) when they face St. Colmcilles in the League final on Saturday 21st September at 4pm. Venue has yet to be decided. This team has taken magnificent strides this year under the stewardship of Kevin Hanley and Mickey Hand and a potential double would cap off the perfect year for the team. Please keep an eye on fixtures for more details on the league final.

U16 – After losing out in the group stages of the A Championship, Western Gaels now enter the Shield Semi Final against St. Vincents on Saturday 14th September in Dunbeggan at 4pm. Please keep an eye on fixtures for confirmation of this game as the tie could change given senior championship results in the county this week.

Congratulations to Sean and Sinead Farrell – Lisduff, on arrival of their first baby girl.

Club Rathcline Lotto Draw - Preparations are ongoing for Phase 2 of the Lotto campaign and it is hoped to have the fundraiser rolled out in the next couple of weeks. Letters will be posted out to our existing participants with subscription renewal forms. Many thanks to all our patrons who participated in the last lotto and we look forward to your support for Phase 2.
