AHANE GAA CLUB NOTES
Ready to Return to Play
Saturday was a wonderful one for Ahane GAA club. From early morning volunteers began arriving at Mackey Park to help prepare the club before our underage members return to training from Monday. Our players deserve the best we can provide! It was heart warming to see all areas of the club being represented, hurling, football, camogie and ladies football, club committees, as well as some people from the local community. For many it was their first experience of an Ahane GAA Meitheal and many new friendships were formed over a cuppa. Thanks to all the hard work the clubhouse and pitches look fabulous. It is a wonderful tribute to so many people who gave so freely to the club today. It is because of this co-operation that we can all drive forward to make Ahane a truly progressive club doing its best for its members. Your contribution to the club is always welcome and appreciated. Ar scáth a chéile a mhaireann na daoine! Photos of the fabulous work can be found on our social media pages!

The Club Lotto is our biggest annual fundraiser, and it helps to keep the club running day to day. Without your continued support we would not be able to keep the Club running and we would not be able to develop our facilities. To those who have entered already we appreciate your support greatly!
