Adare Bord na nÓg are running a virtual fundraiser called the Cheltenham Champion with a prize pot of €400. This will really support our great plans we have for Bord na nÓg this year and any support is greatly appreciated. Follow ‘Adare GAA’ on Instagram, FB or Twitter for rules and how to enter. We had another excellent response from the boys and girls of at the Adare Bord na nÓg Virtual Hurling Camp. Thanks to David and Michael O’ Mahony who led a very active workout and skills session. Austin Gleeson, Waterford’s Intercounty star, gave very relatable insights into his hurling life and answered some great questions. Austin had high praise for the group who worked very hard during the workout. Austin also gave the group homework to have completed before next weekend’s camp. The camp continues for another 2 weekends and we are looking forward to next Saturday at 10am to Senior Hurlers, Jody Hannon and Mark Connolly who will lead the workout and skills session. A huge thanks to John Fitzgibbon who hosted the camp. Our u/11, u/13’s and u/15’s continue with their on-line training sessions each week. The u/15’s had a very competitive Great Adare Bake off led by David O’Mahony and Pat Madden. The Banana Bread’s looked mouth-watering and we seem to have a number of budding chefs as well as GAA stars.
The Friday 5th Mar Lotto draw numbers were: 7, 22, 27, 34. There was no winner which raises the Jackpot to €6,300. Remember you can now complete our weekly lotto online, google ’Adare GAA Smart lotto’. The next draw takes place Friday 12th March at 8:30pm.
Please remember the late Michael Dillon, Clorane, Adare, who past away on the 18th of Feb. He is sadly missed by his wive Nora and family and also his brothers and sisters. In his playing days for Adare he was indeed a classy hurler and thanks to all who went to see him during his illness espe-cially the Kildimo people. May he rest in peace. From a loving family member.
Adare GAA would like to extend our deepest sympathy to Michael’s family, friends and all who knew him. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis.
