DROMIN ATHLACCA GAA CLUB NOTES
This was a busy week for Dromin Athlacca GAA Club as matches and training for all ages resumed. As numbers of COVID 19 cases slowly climb, it is imperative that all guidelines are adhered to and that we are all as compliant and vigilant as possible. Please ensure that the Health Questionnaire is completed before each training session and match and remember,do not present for training or match if you have a high temperature or cough. Please note that players need to be dropped to training 5 mins pre start time prepared for training with each player having their own water bottle. Sharing of these will not be permitted. Please keep in contact with relevant groups for updates.

Due to the delay of Phase 4 of Covid Restrictions the indications are that each championship game will be “ all ticket” for adults and children alike. The club will be allocated
approximately 50 tickets for the upcoming first round of Premier Intermediate Championship which sees Dromin Athlacca play Glenroe. Tickets are 5e each. No concessions. Tickets will be available for Dromin Athlacca GAA Senior Club members. If you wish to become a member 30epp can be paid online to IBAN number IE49AIBK93521207561054 or to any committee member. Closing date for membership is Wednesday July 22nd. If you wish to purchase a ticket for this match, please give your name directly to a club member on or before Wednesday July 22nd. A draw can then be made for tickets. It is envisioned that intercounty games will become an “ all ticket” affair and same club terms as 2019 will then apply. These are extremely uncertain times and extremely difficult situations for clubs and committees to work through, which we will endeavour to do. Last Man Standing Competition: Congratulations to John Sheehan Jnr and Michael Madigan of Colmanswell, who decided to split the prize money for the last man standing Premier League Competition organised by the Premier Intermediate players. This was a tremendous success and the players would like to thank all who contributed. This fundraiser raised over 3000e and kitted out the new clubhouse gym.
