We are excited to announce that in the coming weeks we will be launching our very own dedicated App for Kilruane MacDonaghs GAA club. This is a very positive move for the club and demonstrates our commitment to progressing and strengthening our community. We have teamed up with ClubSpot, an Irish company, who have developed this App free of charge. As County final winners, we were given the unique opportunity to have it developed with no outlay to the club.
The App has a range of benefits for the club. All our club notifications and communications will be sent through the App and you can receive a notification when a new message has been issued. Managers will be able to communicate securely with their teams through the App, notifying them of training/matches etc. This will ensure our compliance with GDPR and remove the need for WhatsApp messages. Membership can be paid directly through the App so please bear with us while we get it all set up. A calendar of events will show when there are matches or club events on. The Lotto can be played online using the App.
The App will be free to download on the App Store/Google Play Store when it is fully completed. We will communicate with you as soon as it is ready to go and you will be notified about the launch and how to use it.
Membership for 2023 is now due. The following are the fees: Adult Players over 18 – €100; Players U18 – €60; Non Playing Adults - €60. The club is also offering two very attractive Membership packages: Adult Package to include Tipperary Draw, Lotto & Membership - €200; and Family Package - €250 to include Tipperary Draw, Lotto & Membership.
