MONALEEN GAA CLUB NOTES
BEST OF LUCK: Best wishes to Monaleen’s Paul Kinnerk who is a key member of the Limerick senior hurling coaching team which will play Waterford in the Munster championship final at Semple Stadium, Thurles on Sunday next at 4pm. Limerick will be hoping to retain the title.
COMMISERATIONS: Commiserations to Monaleen’s Donal O’Sullivan who lined out at goalkeeeper with Limerick senior footballers who agonisingly lost out to Tipperary after etxra time in Saturday’s Munster senior football championship semi-final at the LIT Gaelic Grounds. Donal contributed two points to Limerick’s tally after converting a free and a ’45. Limerick footballers did seal promotion to Division 3 of the Allianz Football League for 2021 in recent weeks.
CLUB AGM: The Monaleen GAA Club AGM will take place on 9th December at 8pm. The club has been instructed that our AGM must take place virtually. If you are interested in attending, please email Liam de Burca at firstname.lastname@example.org,
BEFORE Wednesday, 25th November at 10pm
Please also email any motions and/or nominations for officers or committee positions to the Club Secretary by 25th November at 10pm.
COME ON BOARD: As we approach the end of another year, work also begins on preparing for next year. We have so many plans to improve and develop, but the biggest issue facing the club is the serious lack of volunteers for various roles and committees within the club, including fundraising, fields management and bookings, lotto collectors, to name a few. There are too few of us trying to deliver a first class club, and we are now appealing to each and every member of the club, and also to the parents and families of our members to come on board. Many hands make light work, and we need your help to build a club for the future which will cater for all members. Caroline, John, James, Audrey.
RECIPE FOR SUCCESS: Yvonne from the Healthy Club project at Monaleen GAA has recorded a series of recipe demonstrations from the official healthy club recipe book – ‘Recipes for Success’. Gaelic games are high intensity sports and demand a wide range of physical and mental attributes in order to maximise performance. Performance nutrition provides the body with the appropriate fuel and nutrient sources to train and recover optimally. Monaleen are delighted to share these recipes with you on their Facebook page, Twitter account and Youtube channel.
LOTTO: The latest Lotto draw took place on Thursday, November 5 with the jackpot standing at €20,000. The numbers drawn were 8, 9, 22 and 32. Winners of the €50 lucky dips were P Keating, Peafield; K B Brosnan, Killonan; H Mulcahy. Monaleen Heights. Thank you for your continued support.
