St Mary’s Kiltoghert GAA Club Notes 06/02/2018

UNDERAGE PRESENTATION – What an evening we had on Saturday last in St. Mary’s Hall as Dublin legend Alan Brogan presented medals to some of the future stars of our club. Alan is a real gentleman and we would like to sincerely thank him for attending and spending so much time ensuring everyone, young and old got their selfie and his autograph. Alan was an inspiration to all that attended giving some wonderful advice to the young players and future stars of the club. Special thanks also to all that attended and to all those that helped in any way to ensure that this was a wonderful event. Thanks to Emma Glancy who provided the wonderful food and ensured no one left hungry!!Thanks to all Leitrim and Connacht Scór medal winners as they all performed for us on the night and left us in no doubt that Scór is a very big part of our wonderful club. A special mention to Kathy Butler who acted as MC for the evening and what a wonderful job she did.

CLUB LOTTO NEWS – As a club, we endeavour to give the best possible experience to all our players and members. We field approximately 20 teams and have an ever-increasing membership at underage level, which is great for the club, however, this brings costs if we want to strive for the best for our members.

Our Club lotto is a means which allow us to do this. We feel that we need to put a bigger focus on this within the club members and would be grateful if you could give us a little help in this regard.

Try to do the lotto at least once per week €2 per line.

You can do a yearly lotto for €80 which enters you into 52 draws.

We already have 4 teams that go out in town on a Saturday night for 1 hour selling the lotto and we are trying to build another 2 or 3 teams. If we can do this, it would mean that each team would only have to go out selling for 1 hour every 6 or 7 weeks. We are looking for 10 or 12 people who might give a hand by joining a team. If you can please contact the following Joe Shannon on 0872385644 or Seán McGoldrick on 0862347984

Our OsKaRs was a resounding success but this money is ring-fenced for future club development and not the day to day running at the club.

We would like to thank you for your past support and your support into the future.
