MONALEEN GAA CLUB NOTES
COVID-19: We remain in Level 5 restrictions and must comply wholeheartedly with the restrictions in spirit and in practice. We thank everyone for their compliance in this regard. Monaleen CV-19 outreach team have made a number of runs to Centra Monaleen & SuperValu Castletroy. We’re happy to support our community in these challenging times. Contact Alan at 087 7766022 or Caroline at 087 6448807.
LOTTO: Our lotto collectors have been doing mighty work in the past few weeks to contact our lotto members and “book” them in for 2021. This has presented challenges as we are limited by Level 5 Covid restrictions. As a result, numbers in the lotto will likely be down on previous years, unfortunately at a time when we are commencing the development of our pitch on Peafield Road. We would be extremely grateful therefore if all club members who have not already joined would do so, and also reach out to their friends and family and let them know about our club lotto. At only €8.34 per month standing order or €100 per year once off payment, it would help us hugely in our endeavours to provide top class facilities for our Members. Please contact any of the following: your child’s head coach, James Johnson, Keenan Mullane, Audrey Rushitzko, Caroline O’Kane, or directly to any member of Monaleen GAA committee.
