MONALEEN GAA CLUB NOTES
RETURN TO ACTION: Monaleen GAA club are thrilled to return to the fields of play in recent weeks. Considerable efforts were put in by officers of the club, across every sector – Adult, Juvenile, Ladies Football and Camogie, over the past number of weeks to prepare and plan for this return. There are significant requirements on the club, and we are very appreciative of the number of parents and coaches who have stepped forward to become Covid Compliance Officers for each team. We ask all members to do their utmost to comply with the requests of these officers. Together we will ensure that we all play our part in ensuring the safety of all members. We wish every team the best in their respective competitions.
COVID VOLUNTEER RESPONSE: Things have really slackened off over the last few weeks and calls in to the Monaleen GAA Covid Volunteer Response have now reduced to a standstill. With a view to a potential second wave, we will keep our volunteer group on standby. We took loads of calls and helped out so many households who would otherwise have been in a serious bind. We were delighted and proud to serve so many of our community in their hour of need.
CONDOLENCES: All in Monaleen GAA club would like to extend our deepest sympathy to Michael and the Sheahan family on the death of his brother Francis Sheahan. Michael is our former Chairman and former vice principal of Monaleen National school. Ar Dheis Dé go raibh a hanam.
LOTTO RESULTS: The latest Lotto draw took place on Thursday, July 3 with the jackpot standing at €20,000. The numbers drawn were 13, 15, 21 and 28. Winners of the €50 lucky dips were M. Noonan, Kylemore; S. Walker, Kilonan; P. Mulqueen, Evanwood; M. Lipper, Norwood Park. The subscriber draw was staged on Thursday night last ‘behind closed doors’. The draw was streamed on Facebook and Instagram Stories. Thank you for your continued support.
ATTENTION DOG OWNERS: Our coaches have reported a significant amount of dog faeces on the playing pitches in the clubhouse field in recent days. It has escalated to the point that our coaches are now forced to inspect the field prior to training, especially juvenile training.
This is really disappointing as it represents such a health risk. We appeal to all of our members to be vigilant, and report any person seen walking their dogs to a coach or officer of the club. Thank you all for your co-operation.
