Mohill GAA Club Notes 06/02/2019

County Team – Well done to the young men of the County team, after another great win against a strong Wicklow side on Sunday last. Every player did his bit and Mohill’s representatives Shane Quinn and Domhnaill Flynn did not let the side down. Next weekend we play Antrim in Avantcard Páirc Seán Mac Diarmada on Sunday, so come out and support.

GAA National Club Draw – These tickets are on sale at present. The sole purpose of the GAA National Club Draw is to assist clubs in their drive to raise much-needed funds to aid in the development and promotion of our games. This is an opportunity for clubs to raise up to €20000. Each club retains all the proceeds from the tickets sold by their club. All prizes are provided by Ard Chomhairle, they include a car, All Ireland luxury packages, and large shopping vouchers. Tickets €10 each and are available until Feb 10 from Club Treasurer Lisa Boyle on 0879827357 or any club executive.

Frank Donnellan RIP – The club extends deepest sympathy to the family of Frank Donnellan who passed away two weeks ago, Frank was grandfather to Erin, Hanna and Faye Reynolds, all these girls have played for Mohill and indeed Erin was secretary to the Senior club for a period. May he rest in peace.
