Coolaney/Mullinabreena GAA PRO Club Notes

November 8, 2018

Coolaney/Mullinabreena GAA


Lottto Membership:


The Club lotto membership for 2009 is now due for renewal. Tickets are available from officials, players and club managers. The club urges all senior players, parents of underage players and supporters to become club members via our lotto. This is the primary source of funding for the day-to-day running of the club activities from U-8 through to Intermediate as well as off the field activity. The costs associated with a club like ours have increased again this year and we therefore look to an expansion of our membership base to allay these costs. The club must cover county affiliation fees, club registration, player and property insurance, grounds maintenance plus numerous ancillary expenses each year. Membership is €100 and this entitles the holder to entry into 12 monthly lotto draws plus the Christmas bonus draw. The Jackpot currently stands at €5800! A €200 members prize is also drawn each month. Once again, we thank all club members for their support to date and we look forward to renewed backing for the year ahead.


On-Line Lotto:


We remind all members and potential members that you can now sign up for the club’s membership lotto on our website and we especially hope that club supporters away from home might avail of this facility.


Newsletter Subscription:


The most recent addition to the club’s website is the facility to subscribe to receive our planned monthly newsletter. Simply log on and leave your name and e-mail address and we will then forward on the monthly newsletter with the Lotto results as well as the latest goings on within the club. Once again we hope to reach out in particular to club supporters who are away from home and might appreciate this link. Make sure to alert anybody you may know in this regard.


Christmas Social:


The club is planning a Christmas social night on Friday January 2nd in Lipsett’s Mountain Inn, Coolaney. This date has changed from the previously announced date of December 28th. This change is due to the clash with the Sligo 1968 Minor team’s 40th anniversary event. A presentation will take place on the night to the club’s U-14 League winning team. The December Lotto draw as well as the Christmas bonus draw will also be held on the night. We hope this year to revive what was once a very successful annual social event within the club. Mark the date in your diary.


Commemorative DVD:


A Commemorative DVD is currently being compiled featuring the Jubilee Team Presentation as well as the full range of photographs taken during the day and on the night in the Clarion Hotel. Also included in this production will be the complete display of photos that formed the slide show detailing the history of the club. The earliest club photos from the 1950’s through to the most up to date were collated as a result of an appeal made over the last few months. There was a fantastic response to the appeal and after a number of requests were received, this extensive array of photos will now be available as a complete collection.
