Enniscrone/Kilglass GAA notes 29th January 2017
Our annual Dinner Dance takes place this Friday, February 10th in the Diamond Coast Hotel, Enniscrone. It promises to be a great night’s entertainment with the usual club awards being presented. We will also be honouring the Junior Championship winners of 1966 on the 50th anniversary of their success, as well as the 1991 Intermediate team who captured the championship title 25 years ago. Tickets will are now on sale from any committee member, Sheridan’s Kilglass and Checkout Enniscrone. Don’t miss what will be a great night.
Astro Turf development
The astro turf development is coming along very well at Quigabar with the electrical work being undertaken over the weekend – thanks to John Lynott, Francie Gallagher, Dermot Murphy and Dara Rouse for goving of their time and expertise voluntarily. We have launched our fundraising drive to help fund the completion of the project, and hope that supporters, players, sponsors and associates of the club can contribute in the next couple of months. There are three ways you can contribute – buying a brick (€100), block (€250) or wall (€1500). All donors will be remembered in perpetuity on a donor wall inside the building when complete. To donate contact Joe Cawley (087) 9173991, Eugene Nelson (087) 2339591 or [email protected] Your support at this extraordinary time in the club’s history would be greatly appreciated.
We extend our congratulations to Paul Tuffy Jnr, Culleens and now New York, who will receive the Sligo Person of the Year award at the Sligo-New York Dinner Dance next weekend. Paul’s father, Paul Snr, has been a stalwart of the club and was our Vice President in recent years. Congratulations to Paul and all of his family on the award – we hope everyone enjoys the night.
Best wishes to our Ocean FM ‘Pole Position’ quiz team of Gerry Gilroy, Eoin Hallinan and Micheal Sheridan in their first round clash with Owenmore Gaels this week. The sports quiz sees 16 clubs take part from all across the region. Tune into Ocean FM next Sunday evening at 6pm to hear how the lads got on.
There was no winner of last weekend’s blotto draw. The jackpot is now €4900, and the draw continues every Saturday night. Your continued support is greatly appreciated.
