CLUB LOTTO

For many years, our weekly lotto envelopes provided a steady and reliable source of income for the club. We are now introducing an online option to run alongside the traditional envelope lotto and we hope to welcome many new players. You can purchase for yourself or on behalf of a relative or friend; you can pre-buy and auto-renew so you never miss a draw. The current jackpot stands at €10,000 – so that would go down nicely in anyone’s household. Lotto envelopes are available in local shops and through usual sellers. First draw is Wednesday 14th April 2021 at 8pm with a jackpot of €10,000!! Play club lotto online here: https://bit.ly/2Pz5Bkb

 

MEMBERSHIP 

We're also welcoming new members for 2021 at all age levels in Gaelic football, ladies Gaelic football and camogie. Also hurling for U8, U10s & U12s. You can pay your membership for 2021 online here: http://returntoplay.gaa.ie

 

ST ANNE'S FITNESS PROGRAMME

Wednesday evening was the last week of our 13-week St. Anne's senior fitness programme. We would like to say a huge thank you to Dr. Bronagh McGrane who co-ordinated and put together this programme for us in preparation for return to play this SEASON. We are very grateful for the time and effort that she put into our weekly plans and for challenging us to improve little by little each week. Thanks to all our U17 and senior players for putting in the work over the last 13 weeks.  No doubt it will stand to the girls when they get back to the field.

HELP FOR HARRY

Please support former Naomh Fionnbarra stalwart Trevor Dolan and his wife Sandra as they are trying to raise funds for their son Harry, who has a very rare genetic disorder called MSL3 syndrome. He is currently the 1st child in Ireland diagnosed with this condition and there is less than 50 children worldwide.  Donations towards Harry’s cause would be greatly appreciated by the Dolan family.

MAKING A POINT TOGETHER

Making a point together for SOSAD is a fundraiser running on Saturday 5th June and Sunday 6th June where Conor Lynch and his friend Evan Bird will visit all the GAA clubs in Co. Louth. They will wear the club jersey when we are there and will record ourselves kicking a point in every ground in the county. This idea came about as the lads have learned over the last year through this pandemic that we are in that mental health is so important. They are combining 2 passions which are mental health and Louth GAA and make it into a fundraiser for a brillant organisation in SOSAD. Please visit https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Conor-lynch to donate. 

 

VOTES OF SYMPATHY

The club would like to express our deepest sympathy to the family of Sinéad Treacy, Briarhill, Grangebellew and Pat White, Upper Jenkinstown, Dundalk who is the father of former men's team manager Paddy White.  May they Rest In Peace.

 

Kind Regards,

Nicholas Butterly P.R.O.
