We are delighted to announce that our lotto will resume next Monday, 8th March with a starting jackpot of €4,100. With restrictions still in place, we are asking our members and supporters to make every effort to play our lotto online. It costs just 2 per week to play safely online and there are different payment plans available. Please choose the ‘auto-renew’ option and also help family members who may not have an online presence to join. The link to join is on the Home page of the club website so please sign up now and you will be included when the lotto resumes next week. The lotto has always been one of our main fundraisers and as we are applying for grants etc for our upcoming developments, we need to prove that our existing fundraising is adequate in the current Covid climate to be considered for these grants. For this reason it is of vital importance to us now that everyone continues to row in behind our lotto.
Future Club Developments
A special Committee meeting was held via zoom last week where the plans for the future developments of the facilities in MacDonagh Park were outlined. These developments will be completed in stages over a number of years and will hopefully begin in the next couple of months with the building of a new hurling wall adjacent to the existing outside field. The plan will continue on with the development of a new playing field on the land purchased in the last couple of years. This area of the grounds will be further developed to include secure fencing, dressing rooms, floodlights and a walkway which will go around the entire site. To finish off it is hoped to upgrade our existing complex and carpark. To be able to complete such an ambitious plan will obviously require huge funds and while we are hoping funding will be available through various grants and schemes including the Capital Sports grant and the Tax exemption scheme, a large portion of the finance will have to come through fundraising. To facilitate this a fundraising committee has been set up with representatives from all aspects of the club and as restrictions begin to lift over the coming months this group will start putting plans in place for a number of fundraising projects. It is important that this fundraising is well supported in order to bring this major project to fruition.
