AHANE GAA CLUB NOTES
We hope that you are keeping healthy and coping well with the Covid-19 restrictions.
We are reactivating our Club lotto in the next 2 weeks as it is vital to the financial wellbeing of our Club and help us to continue to provide the facilities which enable all our players to enjoy a safe and enjoyable environment and reach their full potential as adult players.
We hope to have collection completed by the end of June when we will commence with two draws each month, giving us our 10 draws by the end of the year.
We are going to ask everyone who have kindly supported our draw over the last number of years to please rejoin again this year and show their continued support for Ahane GAA Lotto to ensure we can remain on a secure financial footing into 2021.
As we can’t call to collect our lotto in person this year , we have a number of options available on how people can continue to support our lotto if 2020.
1.- Pay through your bank account to the club IBAN : IE08AIBK93551400117412 – then send a text to our Secretary Tony confirming you’re payment along with your 4 chosen lotto numbers.
2.- Go to ahane.ie, click on the lotto button and complete the transaction online
3.- Contact your regular lotto collector in your area or indeed any committee member (list available under contacts on ahane.ie)
4.- Send cheque for €120 payable to AHANE Gaa club along with your 4 chosen lotto numbers to our Secretary Tony at Laught, Lisnagry, Co. Limerick
5.- Complete the lotto brochure and return it with a cheque to our Club Secretary Tony at Laught, Lisnagry, Co. Limerick
We thank you all very sincerely for your continued support of Ahane GAA Club – It is highly valued and always appreciated.
Update on Covid-19 Restrictions
We would like to acknowledge the incredible efforts of so many of our members in community assistance projects with so many being so active in one way or another over the last eight weeks in helping those who need it most.
The GAA issued an update last Thursday on the plan going forward.
On the games front, the GAA has confirmed that no official on-field activity will resume before July 20 and our facilities will remain closed until that date. We do not expect any inter-county championship games before October 1.
The GAA will issue detailed advice before any return to play, outlining the steps we have to take to facilitate the re-commencement of our training and games, both in terms of physical engagement and around the use of our facilities.
As previously stated, the GAA Player Injury Scheme will remain closed until an official return to activity is confirmed. In the weeks ahead our County Committees will be devising revised competition schedules for each county for games and activities at all levels and grades and that information will be shared when those arrangements are finalised and we have clarity around the government timelines.
Clubs are reminded that membership and public liability will need to be in place for the return of our activities and are advised to process same in the weeks ahead.
Allowing for the complexities associated with the current situation, the GAA continues to plan for the staging of this year’s Kellogg’s Cúl Camps and will communicate any changes to this approach with our clubs if they arise.
Unity Credit Union
We would like to acknowledge and thank Unity Credit Union in Castleconnell for their ongoing support of the club. Unity Credit Union are our main sponsors for 2019-2021 and are always on hand if ever we need anything. We appreciate their support greatly and all that they do not only for the club but for the community as a whole.
Just a reminder of the support that is here if anyone in our community needs assistance getting medicines, fuel or prescriptions in and does not want to leave their homes.
We in Ahane GAA Club are only delighted to help and support the community that supports our club.
If you or any family member need any support please contact Mary or Maria who will organise assistance for you with our group of volunteers.
