Pausing of Lotto Draws. Notice to Club Members

 

Due to the Covid 19 restrictions and the closure of the Club facilities it is necessary to pause all Lotto draws for the next month when we will review it.

ALL tickets sold for this weeks draw, 19th March will be held over until the first draw on resumption.

ALL annual pre-paid tickets will have the time extended, eg from 31st Oct or we can credit them by reducing the payment due for 2021 taking into account the number of draws not done in 2020.

Also ALL on-line players will retain their credit for future draws.

The option to purchase tickets on-line will continue and any tickets purchased will commence with the 1st draw on resumption.

Many thanks to all who have payed and supported our Lotto Fund raising over the years.

Thanks

James O'Shea,
Chairman, Lotto Committee.

Covid-19 Update - 18ú Márta 2020

Subject: Covid-19 Update - 18ú Márta 2020

A chairde,

As part of our collective efforts in dealing with the Covid-19 outbreak, it is our intention to communicate with our units on a regular basis and keep you informed of developments as they happen.

The GAA can today confirm that a number of coaching and games initiatives will not proceed in light of the prevailing circumstances.

These include the 2020 Féile competitions, the Celtic Challenge and activity involving Academy Squads.

It has also been confirmed that the Connacht Senior Football Championship meeting between New York and Galway, scheduled to take place in Gaelic Park, New York on May 3rd, has been postponed

The future for this fixture will be considered at a later date and in the context of the anticipated overall re-drawing of the national fixtures calendar for 2020 as necessitated by the ongoing disruption to the GAA games programme.

We will add to this list as further cancellations arise.

The Association would like to reassure our members that when games activity re-commences we will provide an adequate games schedule for our players at all ages and grades.

In the meantime, we are working on a unified approach for all of our units on the issue of Games Development and Administration personnel and will be liaising with our Provincial Councils and County Committees in the coming days.

Thank you for your combined efforts to date.

These efforts have the potential to make a massive difference and it is in this vein that we ask you to continue to mobilise the GAA network and our wider membership in the interests of public health and the greater good.

Please continue to exercise caution relating to social distancing and coughing and sneezing etiquette and continue to refer to HSE.ie for more detailed advice.
