Development update: Work continues on the ground with diggers back on site over the past few weeks.
A few big weeks ahead of us now as we reach the final stages of this phase of the project – the drainage systems will be prepared and the land will then be leveled with topsoil and sand.
Costs continue to be a big part of this and so we continue to seek funding for this phase of the project.
Our membership packages are still open and we thank everyone who has contributed so far. If you would like to take advantage of one of these packages, please contact a club officer or committee member for more information.
Donations can also be made electronically – bank details available from Anne Kennedy and John Tooher. Be sure to include your contact details if you transfer money to this dedicated fundraising account.
Lotto: This week’s lotto jackpot was €3,900. Our new lotto boxes are now located at the following businesses in town – The Hi-B, JKC, Centra, Rocky’s, Cleary’s Daybreak & Andy’s. You can buy your lotto tickets here every week and they will be included in the next lotto draw.
So please keep an eye out for our new lotto boxes on these premises and continue to support our lotto. You can also continue to play our online lotto or contact any member of the Committee.
Thank you for your continued support of our lotto.
Tipperary Draw: The first draw for the 2022/23 Tipperary Draw took place last Friday night and the club had two winners – congratulations to Joe Donoghue and Marion Ryan who won €300 each.
We would like to thank everyone who supported the draw once again this year as well as all of our promoters and Marion and Bartley Ryan for their hard work over the past few weeks.
The next draw will take place on Friday, October 14. It’s still not too late to participate in the remaining draws; contact Bartley Ryan or any club officer if you would like to join.
Club Fundraiser: Our annual monster draw for a trailer loaded with firewood will take place this Saturday, October 8th.
All groups received cards to sell lines to enter the draw, each line/entry costs €2. Cards can be returned to the head coach before training this week or alternatively we will be at the clubhouse next weekend to collect the returned cards, times and dates will be posted on WhatsApp.
Also this Saturday we will be selling lines to the general public at different stations in the city, the lot will be on display in town at the same time.
