Club Notes - Jan 19th 2009:

November 8, 2018


An Emergency General Meeting has been called for this Wednesday(21st January) in the Rowantree at 9pm. Attendance from club members is important as the meeting has been called to finalise the appointment of a number of key positions in the executive.

Underage Management:

All underage management are asked to attend the Rowantree at 9.30pm this Wednesday in order to discuss plans for the current player year.

Registration Day:

A registration day for all underage players will take place this Saturday at 11am at the Handball court at the field. This is in order to facilitate the paying of membership and gathering information on each player.

Mouth Guards:

At last November’s AGM a motion was passed by members that in the interest of safety the club would promote the wearing of mouth guards for all underage players. As part of this the club have investigated the possibility of having custom mouth-guards made for anybody that may be interested.

Figures show that 31% of sporting injuries will result in damage to your teeth, face and head. When you have an injury to your teeth, there is a 95% chance of permanent disfigurement to your most visible upper front teeth. The risk of injury can be seriously reduced by using a quality mouth-guard.

A dental laboratory in Meath that will travel to the club and take moulds for these mouth-guards have agreed that they will strike a deal at €45 per gum shield. This cost is substantially less than what one would pay for a custom made gum shield at a dentist who may charge anything up to €200 for a similar service. Bringing the laboratory up however is dependent on interest from players and parents.

If anybody would like to express their interest in availing of this offer or would like to gather any further information on the benefits of a custom made mouth guard they are welcome to contact Stephen Feeney at 086 0663228.

Leitrim v Sligo:

Unfortunately Leitrim’s match with Sligo on Sunday was called off due to the terrible weather over the weekend. The cancellation meant that the eagerly awaited debut of Colm Clarke did not take place however it won’t be too long until we see him in the green and gold in the coming weeks.

Club Membership:

Membership is now due for the year 2009. (View detail’s of costs as in the Notes below from Jan 5th).


The Lotto took place in Wynne’s last Saturday night. The jackpot was €1,425. Numbers drawn were 3, 6, 8, 17. There was no winner. (View ‘Club Lotto’ page for full details).

IT officer Brendan McNama has set up the lotto online which now means that where ever you are in the world you can support Drumkeerin GAA. The link will soon be available on the Drumkeerin website but can also be gained access to on Thanks to Brendan for his hard work in this regard, I am sure it will be a great success.


It is that time of the year again. A meeting and training for all Senior players will take place on Sunday at 12pm. The league starts this year on February 21/22 so commitment from the off is essential.
