Kilruane MacDonaghs Notes Jan-11-2021
The Annual General Meeting scheduled for 22nd January has been deferred. An alternative date will be arranged as soon as possible. Meanwhile, the executive has appointed managers for the Senior, Junior ‘A’, Junior ‘C’, U21 and U19 teams with the full complement of selectors almost finalised.
Under the current Level 5 Restrictions collective training for our adult and underage teams is not permitted. Our facilities at MacDonagh Park are closed. Players and members are asked to cooperate in complying with the latest Restrictions.
Congratulations to Helen Hyland, Carney who won the €2,400 Jackpot. As the new Restrictions are going to scuttle any planned Fundraising ventures in the immediate future the Lotto becomes even more vital as a source of income. We are grateful to all who continue to support the Lotto and we encourage all families in the parish to join and enable us to both maintain and develop our facilities while also preparing all our teams to the highest possible standard.
The Jackpot now stands at a very attractive €2,200. Tickets are available from our usual promoters and outlets while the online option is becoming increasingly popular in the current climate. The Link is available on our Facebook and Twitter Pages & Website.
The sixth Draw has been postponed and will be held when the current Restrictions are lifted. This postponement will give our promoters and subscribers an opportunity to bring all payments up to date.
The club extends sympathy to the family of the late Pierce O’Leary, Arizona and formerly Beechwood. Pierce was a member of the Kilruane MacDonaghs minor hurling team that won the 1952 North Final.
