The Dromin Athlacca GAA App is going from strength to strength. Dromin Athlacca GAA Club along
with Banogue GAA and Dromin Athlacca Banogue Juvenile club have all come together for this new
venture. A large number of members, both playing and non-playing have already downloaded this
app, so even if you don’t play, you can still be connected to your club. This app will now be used for
paying club membership and news updates. Remember, it is necessary to be a registered member of
our club to be eligible to play and avail of club facilities tickets and other club events and draws. We
are all very excited about this new app and we hope that everyone can get involved. To download
this app, you must first download Clubzapp in the app store or Google Playstore. Then search for
“Dromin Athlacca Banogue” and “join”. From there you can pick which club you want to pay
membership to along with the option of playing or non playing member. If anyone has any queries,
