Another way to win in Rathkeale...
68th Annual Christmas Draw
Yes, it’s that time of year again! At this stage you will have received an envelope containing Rathkeale GAA Club Christmas draw tickets.
The draw committee are asking that you do your best to sell these. The draw, now in its 68th year, is one of your Club’s main fundraisers, and has never been so important with the erection of a spectator stand in progress in the Bog Garden.
As a Club, we have had great success recently, thanks in no small way to people like you who help to fund it via the Christmas draw. We are appealing to you to continue your support again this year.
You are also invited to the draw on Thursday 19th Dec (after the bingo), which will be held in the Community Centre, Rathkeale. Best of luck in the draw, let’s hope you will be a winner of one of the 50 fantastic prizes on offer!
