GAA NATIONAL CLUB DRAW 2019 is now an annual event following its success over the past 5 years, in which over €6million has been raised by Clubs. The sole purpose of the draw is to assist Clubs to raise much needed funds to aid in the development and promotion of our games. This is an excellent opportunity for our club to raise up to €20,000. This year, all monies raised by the juvenile teams will be staying with that particular team and used for equipment for that individual team! All prizes provided by Ard Chomhairle.  Tickets available from the Club house or all Team Managers / Coaches.
