Castlelyons GAA Notes 31/01/22 2022-02-08 00:08:00

Tickets for Rebel Bounty

Tickets for the Rebel Bounty draw are now on sale. The Rebel Bounty Draw is becoming a key

fundraiser for clubs like ourselves. The funding from this draw contributed €6,500 to the new ball

stop nets behind the goals, €2000 towards the new gym, and €6000 towards the €100,000

development loan we have. There is over €500,000 in prize money, 12 draws in the year and with

over 30 prizes within each draw. If you wish to buy a ticket you can contact any member of the GAA

committee or visit and make sure to put Castlelyons as your club!

Tent at the Races

Knockanard Point to Points will be going ahead on Sunday February the 13 th and Castlelyons GAA will

have a tent present where you can stop by for all your refreshments. Soup and sandwiches will be

available as well as tea and coffee. Please stop by if you’re feeling peckish, need shelter from the

elements or just want a chat. All money raised will be going towards the development fund so any

help at all would be fantastic.

Membership Due

Club membership is due again. We are using the ‘’ website again this year. Foireann

allows you to register as a member of Castlelyons GAA club online and to choose the membership

fee you wish to pay. Fees are as follows: Adult nonplayer €50, Adult OAP/Social Member €20, Adult

Player €100, Student Player €80. You can still pay the old-fashioned way as well. Just contact one of

the club officers or club registrar Peter Murphy on 0879950075. New members are always welcome

and encouraged so if you are new to the parish or have been here for years yet have an interest in

our games please do contact us to become a member.

One Club

Early discussions are being held within the club to see if developing a ‘One Club’ structure in the

parish would be of benefit to the three sporting organisations (The GAA, LGFA and Camogie

associations) in the community. The idea of ‘One Club’ is to integrate the 3 organisations into a

single managing executive to streamline decision making, fundraising, coaching/development and

management of the overall structures involved in running the clubs. Each club would retain their

own committees to organise the playing of their games as they see fit. We are interested in looking

into this idea more over the next few months and educating ourselves on the pros and cons of such

a move. Such a move would be a fundamental change in the organisation at a local level so more

research will need to be done on all sides before any decision will be made. Any decision about the

‘One Club’ would have to be decided by all members so it is vital that you have your membership

paid if you want to have your voice heard or be apart of the process.

Lotto Jackpot €19,800

Numbers drawn on 31/01/22 were 11,20,31 and 31. There was no winner of the Jackpot. Lucky dip

Kennedy, Fitzgerald Family and Ian Barry. Next week’s draw is on Monday 7th Feb at 8pm in the

Community Centre.
