Monthly Bonanza Draw 


Our very popular Monthly Bonanza Draw is back again this year, but with an added bonus! Like last year there will be 12 draws, with prizes of €500, €200, €150, €150 and a Weekend Pass to the Marquee in Drumlish in each of them! 

This time, however, you will also be entered into the GAA’s National Club Draw, where you could win a brand-new Dacia Duster, €2,000, or 8 other various All Ireland Final packages which include accommodation in the Croke Park Hotel. This draw takes place on March 15th 


The cost of entry is again €100, with an option of 3 for €250. The first Monthly Draw takes place at the end of February (there will be a double draw in December).  


Fr. Manning Gaels are currently undergoing ambitious plans to develop the adjacent land to Monaduff which we hope will include an Astroturf playing area, Handball alley, Ball-Wall area, walkway to link with the Rebel Trail and car parking facilities among other upgrades to the current facilities. We want to see Monaduff Park become a hub for our parish and that is why we would really appreciate you support with this fundraising effort. To enter please play on clubspot or contact any member of the Executive. 




Hard luck to club representatives Paddy Collum and Conor Keenan and the Longford team and management on their defeat by Fermanagh in Ederney last Saturday. Paddy had an exceptional match in goals with excellent kickouts and one magnificent save midway through the second half to keep Longford in the game. It was great to hear our Chairman Mike Mulleady do a superb job on co-commentary on Shannonside. There was an interesting local connection with the Fermanagh team, as their goalkeeper, Sean McNally, is a grand-nephew of former Gaels player and great supporter Michael McNally. Best of luck to the Longford team this weekend against Westmeath
