Rathcline GAA Club Notes 6th July 2014

posted 6 Jul 2014, 10:56 by Rathcline Public Relations Officer

Well done to the lads on their win over Ballymore in Division 2 on Friday night in Clonbonny. The game finished with a scoreline of 4-13 to 2-13. After conceding two early goals it didn’t take Rathcline long to get back into the game and throughout the second half the team showed their fitness and resilience to win the game. Next up for the lads in Division 2 is Grattans in Stonepark this Friday 11th July at 8pm. Let’s hope for back to back wins which will give us confidence and momentum going into our Intermediate Championship game against Legan the following weekend.

With only one week to go until the World Cup final we would like to thank everyone who has bought and sold our scratchcards and we would urge everyone to make one final push to ensure all tickets are sold. You are in with a chance of winning €500 if you have the ticket that has the exact time of the first goal in the World Cup final on Sunday July 13th. Scratchcards only cost €2. We would urge the parish to get behind this fundraiser as money raised will go towards the loan on the pitch.

The Rathcline GAA Race day will take place at the Galway Races on Monday 28th July. The club hope to replicate the success of last year’s event. The occasion will present our parishioners, members, supporters and friends a fantastic afternoon of horse racing on opening day of the 2014 festival. The club have agreed an attractive hospitality package with the organisers in Ballybrit which surpasses that seen at the Annual Punchestown County Board Fundraiser. Most people will be familiar with the Galway Races but for those who are not; a great day out is always guaranteed. Ballybrit at the end of July is always the highlight of the horse racing calendar in Ireland and it is the aim of Rathcline GAA to tap into the atmosphere, banter and craic again to serve our own needs as well as giving something back to our supporters. For more information, please contact Albert Cooney, Alan Fayne or Mickey Farrell (0868509820). With only three weeks to go table bookings are filling fast so don’t miss out.

There was no winner of our weekly lotto jackpot of €900. The winning numbers were 10, 18, 23, 26, 42 and 45. The €25 winners were Brendan Ward – Lanesboro, Patsy Cox – Erenagh, Lanesboro, Co. Roscommon, Paula Kenny – Fermoyle, Lanesboro and Mike & Nancy Casserly – Clonfower, Lanesboro.

Minor Club

Round 3 of the Minor League Division 1 takes place tomorrow evening Monday 7th July at 7.45pm as Western Gaels face Killoe Óg in Dunbeggan.

Our U12s have a challenge match this Friday night 11th July in Drumshambo.

A reminder to all that it is the final week for the €2 World Cup scratchcards. We urge everyone to support the draw to make it successful.

Over the last couple of weeks we have looked for help from parents and disappointedly very few have helped out. We would urge parents to come on board for the last couple of months and help the club out. Remember it’s your club and your children’s club and as a voluntary organisation we need as much help as possible.

Ladies Club

Our senior ladies face Colmcille in the first round of the Senior Championship on this Wednesday evening 9th July at 8pm in Clonbonny. It would be great to see a large crowd out supporting the girls. Best of luck girls.

Best of luck to our U14 girls who play Carrickedmond in the semi-final of the ‘B’ championship at 7pm on Thursday evening 10th July in Clonbonny.
