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). To be in the National Club Draw, please make sure you enter before January 31st. 


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. 




Well done to club representatives Paddy Collum and Conor Keenan and the Longford team and management on winning the O’Byrne Cup at the weekend.
