Would you like to help out?

The following Roles were not filled during the recent Club Annual General Meeting. It is very important that all Officer Roles be filled for the Club going forward. While the roles below do require a certain amount of commitment and time, they are not roles that will necessitate huge quantities of peoples time and effort. 

Being involved in any of the below roles is a great way to see and learn how the Club operates behind the scences in dealing with the day to day running of a GAA Club.  There is always great help, advice and support available from everyone involved in the various committees of the club when and if any support is needed – everyone supports one another.  It is a fantastic gateway to make new friends and new contacts throughout the GAA network and in the community you live in.  A great experience to be involved overall.

Call out for help for Weekly Lotto Team

Would you be interested in joining the lotto group. The current team are stepping down after 28 years of excellent service to the club!!. 👏👏👏. 

We need helpers to step in and take over from the lads. The job involves collecting, counting tickets/money, once every 6/8 weeks on rotation. We would love to have a few from each group helping out as this Fundraiser brings in a lot of badly needed funds for the club. This money is generally used for the day to day running of the club, i.e. ESB Bills, Waste Disposal, Repairs if needed, Footballs, Sliotars, Bibs etc.

Unfortunately if we don’t get a group of people to take over this job the weekly lotto will not be able to continue on. After 28 years to be fair the current group deserve their very well-earned break. Currently there are 2/3 keeping it going till Christmas/New Year but these people are already heavily involved in the club with approx 2 jobs each. Please let me (Emma) know if you’re interested in getting involved with helping. It really won't be much work at all. Thank you.

Contact Emma 086 392 6527

The more helpers we have the better so that the rotation for the group would be every 6/8 weeks.... so once every 6/8 weeks approx would be your turn (with 2 others) to do an hour or 2 on behalf of the Club to run off the €2 Weekly lotto........please let me know if you can help out. Thank you, Emma.

Wishing you all the best of everything for 2020!
