We thank all who currently sell and purchase lotto tickets every week. Your continued support is greatly appreciated and contributes substantially to financing ‘the Club’.

Can you play a part by selling at least 5 tickets every week? Sellers gain entry to a Monthly sellers draw, 1 entry for every 20 tickets sold during the month (draw takes place on the last Monday of each month). Please contact any member of the Committee to get involved. All sold tickets must be left in O’Tooles Bar before 9pm on the night (normally each Monday night) of each weekly draw



With the playing season now over, we have carried out some essential maintenance on the Main Field. This repair to the surface is necessary to ensure our pitch remains one of the best in the County. Therefore, the pitch is now closed for ALL activities until further notice. We hope that all will respect this request.



The Annual General Meeting will be held in the Clubrooms on Wednesday 7 December 2016 @730pm. Completed nomination and motion forms should be signed and returned to the Secretary on or before this date and can be downloaded from the Club Website and are also attached. This is the most important meeting of the year and gives you the member the opportunity to input your ideas on all aspects within the club. All members are invited to attend and new members warmly welcomed. All aspects of the Club Functions and future Club structures shall be discussed with some very significant motions to be debated.



The Senior Presentation will be held in early 2017.



With the dark nights now well established for the winter, we remind all members, especially our Youth members to stay safe on the roads, especially walking to and from the grounds. More information on road safety can be read via the Ulster GAA Website
