National Club Draw
The National Club Draw tickets are back on sale again this year and this great initiative by the GAA has helped contribute vital funds to our club for the past number of years. Individual prizes include: A brand new Renault Clio; a €2,000 travel voucher; All Ireland Hurling & Football packages; various shopping vouchers and many more. Details of each prize available are on each ticket. Tickets cost €10 and can be purchased on Clubspot. This year the club is running a Gaels specific draw where one lucky person who buys from us will win €1,000. As always, your support is greatly appreciated.
Club Membership for the forthcoming year is now available. The cost is €30 for adults and €15 for students. Membership is required for all playing members and for use of the gym. Membership entitles you to attend monthly club meetings and if received before March 31st, entitles you to a vote at next year’s AGM and entry into the draw for All Ireland tickets. All officers, coaches and selectors of both the adult and underage teams must be paid up members to fulfil their roles with Fr. Manning Gaels and/or St. Vincent’s. To pay please contact Registrar, Bridie Reilly.
MyLife Walking Challenge
The MyLife Walking Challenge is up and running until the 3rd of March. Please download the MyLife app and join Fr. Manning Gaels in the Leinster challenge to register your walks each day. The target is a combined total of 4,000km to put us in a draw to win prizes and we have clocked up almost 2,000kms so far
The club expresses its sincere sympathy to the family and friends of Patrick Ginty (Shanmullagh) who passed away in Manchester during the week. The club was also saddened to learn of the passing of Joe Pat Prunty (Newtownbutler, Co. Fermanagh) last week. Our parish is indebted to Joe Pat’s entrepreneurship and ingenuity with the two top class pitches we have at our grounds in Monaduff. He was a true gentleman who has left an enormous legacy here and across the country. Solas na bhFlaitheas orthu.
