If you have not yet joined our lotto or if your ticket has recently expired, please consider signing up again – it is our main fundraiser and contributes enormously to the day to day running of the club.
The lotto can either be played online using the link below or lotto tickets are available from any committee member – this includes the option to enter for multiple draws.
Our Community Friendly lotto was launched in June 2020 and since then we have donated €4,000 of our lotto funds to local charities. So when you play our lotto you are also supporting the charities in our community.
We will be making two further charity donations in the coming weeks to Carmhá and Pieta House – these presentations will be made on 2nd May at the official opening of the new hurling wall.

We extend our sympathies to the O’Kennedy family on the sad passing of Michael O’Kennedy last weekend. Michael was a sub on the 1957 team who won the North Final and has been a great supporter of the club down through the years. His brother Paidi is currently one of our Club Presidents. There was a minutes silence for Michael before our Co League game on Sat evening and the club provided a Guard of Honour before the funeral mass on Tuesday. Ar Dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
