Monthly Bonanza Draw 


Our very popular Monthly Bonanza Draw is back again this year. 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! 


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 Cavan at the weekend. We wish them the best of luck this weekend against Tipperary
