Armagh GAA Club Draw
The very successful Armagh GAA Club draw is running again in 2019. The draw takes place over 4 months – March, April, May and June – with 16 prizes on offer each month. The first prize each month is a Renault Clio, right down to a 16th prize of £200.
Tickets are priced at £100 each with £80 from every ticket going directly to the club after we reach our minimum target of sales. They can be bought by paying the £100 up front or 4 monthly instalments of £25 per month.
Tickets can be purchased from any of our committee members and the more tickets we sell, the more money the club raises. We are encouraging all our club members, families and friends to purchase a ticket either individually or maybe as a group of 4 friends or family members clubbing together at £25 each.
It is brilliant opportunity to raise much needed funds for the club whilst also being in with a chance of winning some fantastic prizes.
Anyone with any sold tickets is asked to bring them to the club on Monday night from 8.30pm onwards.
Kit Bags for Sale
The club have a number of kit bags for sale at a price of £15.00 each (usually £25.00 each). They can be purchased in the club on Monday from 8.30pm on a first come, first served basis.
The club would like thank everyone who contributed to our street collection in the village on Sunday and to everyone who helped organised it and helped out on the day.
Last week’s winning lotto numbers were 4, 5, 25 & 28. There were no jackpot winners and 1 x lucky dip winner. The lotto jackpot is slowly, but surely creeping up again and now stands at £3,150.
The club is always on the lookout for new volunteers, whatever your skills. Maybe you’ve got time on your hands and fancy doing something different, maybe you’re new to the area and are looking to play a part in the community, perhaps your children or grandchildren are players at the club and you’d like to get involved. Whatever your reasons our doors are always open to new members and new ideas whether it be working with our underage teams, helping with fundraising, washing strips, cleaning, upkeep of the grounds, selling lotto, recruitment, club development, lining out the pitch, doing the gate and a host of other tasks. You can be part of Shane O’Neill’s in so many ways, and you can give as much or as little time as suits you – so why not come along a get involved.
The club is hosting a fundraising night on Saturday 2nd March for a couple of good friends of Shane O’Neill’s whose baby daughter is currently in hospital in England awaiting heart surgery. A waxing night, along with a host of other fun activities is planned for the night, and we are encouraging everyone to come along for a good night’s craic whilst raising some much-needed funds for a very worthwhile cause. It will definitely be a night not to be missed with music and great prizes to be won and you will even get the opportunity to inflict some pain on our senior boys as they will be getting waxed also.
The club would like to offer its sympathies to the family of Ann Murphy who passed away recently. Ann was the sister of our late club member and good friend Marty McCone. May she rest in peace.
