KILTEELY-DROMKEEN GAA CLUB NOTES
Lotto Is Back
With the Government restrictions being lifted to Level 3, we are delighted to announce that the Club Lotto will re-commence on Monday December 7th.
The jackpot is €17600, and tickets can be bought in the Aherns Shop Kilteel, Daybreak Dromkeen, and online via the Clubforce App.
The draw will take place at 10pm sharp, live on our Facebook page.
We held our Virtual AGM on Thursday last November 26th. Considering the circumstances it was a very well attended meeting especially given a lot of people had not used the online platform before.
The year gone was a huge year off and on the field for the club. Our junior hurlers were very unlucky just losing out on a quarter final spot on scoring difference.
Our footballers were equally as unlucky, losing the quarter final by one point after extra time.
Off the field it was a momentous year as we completed our new development. With the completion of our indoor ball alley and viewing area, along with outdoor hurling walls and astro-turf and ancillary works, the development will go a long way in catering for the needs of our club and community for decades to come.
Such a huge development physical and financially would not have been possible without out the hard work of a huge number of people. The club deeply apprecates the support of all in the community to our various fundraising events throughout the last few years. That fundraising and grant money received from many quarters has put the club in a very stable footing going forward.
Local developer Clyno Construction under the stewardship of Tommy O Dea oversaw completion to the highest possible standard. With was also heartening to have other local sub contractors involved to bring a real community feel to the development
