County Board Draw: The 2013-14 Tipperary GAA Clubs Draw was officially launched last week and at this stage all our current members should have received their receipts for the 2012-13 draw in the post. Members who did not receive one should contact our club coordinator Marian Ryan. The draw is an essential source of funds for our club and without it much of the games and other development work that goes on in the club would not be possible. We ask all our loyal supporters to remain in the draw if possible and would encourage new members to join. Prizes include cars, holidays and several cash prizes every month – all for €100 per year or €10 per month.
