GAA National Club Draw. The GAA has launched a National Club Draw as a fundraiser for local clubs, with the draw taking place on 27 February 2015. Prizes are being provided by GAA Central Council. The proceeds from all tickets sold by Naomh Colmcille will go directly to Naomh Colmcille, and will be used towards the club’s 2015 yearly expenditure. First prize is a trip with the 2015 All-Stars. Full details available on www.gaa.ie/nationalclubdraw2015.

In addition, the County Board are putting up county also putting up prizes (1 x €1000, 2 x €500, 5 x €100) so local winners are guaranteed.

Tickets priced €10 each are now available from Alison Ferry, Paul Callaghan, Adrian Marsh, or any committee member.

The club Constitution is now available to view on the website. The SGM will be held on Monday 26th January at 8:00 pm in the clubhouse. Anyone with any amendments must have them in writing to the Secretary 14 days prior to the meeting. The only amendment changes dealt with on the night will be the ones that have been received in writing.

The club is now registered for the Lucozade ‘Kit Out’ promotion. Codes are printed on promotional bottles under the plastic wrapper – please note these codes so they can be entered online on behalf of the club to try and collect gear or equipment.

The club would like to offer its sincere condolences to the Geoghegan family following the recent death of Donal Geoghegan. Ar dheis De go raibh a anam.
