Creating memories and bespoke ceremonies
The lotto jackpot last Monday night, 22nd March, was €4,300. Results of our lotto draw, which include the ten names drawn for the supplementary draw, are available on our website and social media platforms every week. We thank you for continuing to support our lotto and ask those that have not yet signed up or who may have cancelled their auto renew during the recent suspension of the lotto to please sign up today - the link to join is on the Club Website - http://www.nenagheireog.com/
We are delighted to announce that as part of our Community Friendly lotto, the next €500 donation will be given to our Frontline Healthcare workers. This donation will be coordinated by the Friends of Nenagh Hospital whereby a raffle will take place among all local frontline staff with five vouchers worth €100 each from local businesses being presented to the five lucky winners. This will take place in week 10 of the current lotto cycle and we will announce over the coming weeks where the vouchers will be for.
We are delighted to announce that the preliminary work on our new Hurling Wall is due to begin this week (weather permitting) - this is the first phase of the upcoming development of MacDonagh Park. The Hurling Wall will be situated at the far end of the complex, adjacent to the existing outside pitch and the initial work will involve the removal of the bank at the town end of the field and the levelling off this area. It's fantastic to see the work commencing on this exciting project which will also include the development of a new floodlit training pitch, new dressing rooms, a 2.5km walking track with lighting and the refurbishment of the existing complex. All these works will be completed over the next number of years and will see MacDonagh Park transformed from what it is today.
To bring these ambitious plans to fruition, the Club will be hoping to avail of significant grant aid and will also make use of the Tax Exemption Scheme but tied in with all of this a major fundraising drive will also be required. A new Community Based Fundraising Committee has been set up and this committee will be responsible for setting up and driving fundraising plans over the coming months and years. These plans will begin in the next couple of weeks but in the meantime we are asking that people continue to support our weekly lotto draw which will also be a huge benefit to our project.
Membership for 2021 is now due and must be paid by 31st March. We are asking all our players and supporters to please pay their membership now. Foireann is the new GAA registration system and while membership should still be paid through Clubforce or to any Committee member, members must set up their own registration on Foireann. Information on how to do this is available on the club website and details have also been shared via the various player Whatsapp Groups. Families should also set up their own registration on https://auth.gaaservers.net/auth/realms/gaa/protocol/openid-connect/auth?client_id=gaa-direct&redirect_uri=https%3A%2F%2Freturntoplay.gaa.ie%2F&state=2da8c773-3f13-4dd5-852f-1d0b4bb6bd38&response_mode=fragment&response_type=code&scope=openid&nonce=6fc423ae-846c-4889-ad11-2d2e46ce3a2a
