Calling all parents/past players-we need you:
Croom GAA club is looking for new volunteers to help re-energise and drive our club into the future. Our recruitment drive begins with the most basic unit of voluntary commitment which is ‘One Hour’. This is the shortest time per week during which one person can make a difference. While it might appear a small amount, lots of one hour voluntary commitments can add up. The three main rewards people get from volunteering are the satisfaction of seeing the results, the feeling of doing good and meeting people. Research has found the main reason for not volunteering is that people were not asked in the first place. Well now you have been asked! If you are reading this we would love you to get involved! So why not give it a go? Your club and community needs you, even for one hour per week! If interested, please contact our club secretary Alan Sheerin to see what area of the club you might like to get involved in.
The U21 hurling championship will begin in early February. Training commences this week. The management team will be in touch with eligible players soon.
GAA National Club Draw:
The GAA National Club Draw is now an annual event following its success over the past five years, in which over €6million has been raised by clubs. The sole purpose of the GAA National Club Draw is to assist clubs in their drive to raise much needed funds to aid in the development and the promotion of our games. Prizes are provided by Croke Park. Each club retains all the proceeds from the tickets sold by their club. Tickets are €10 and available from any committee member up to February 11th. The draw takes place on Wednesday, March 6th, with prizes presented on St. Patrick’s Day in Croke Park.
