WIN A NEW JOHN DEERE
Last weekend saw the launch of our ambitious new fundraiser with a star prize of a new John Deere 6140M(or an alternative of €100,000 in cash). A large crowd gathered in the GAA grounds in Drombane to see the juveniles of Upperchurch Drombane & the underage teams of Slieve Felim Rapparees play a number of games and then the main show of our veterans from times past taking to the field once again. This fundraiser will help us fund the acquisition of land adjoining our current pitch and develop a 2nd pitch along with juvenile pitch. Full details and plans can be found on www.winanewjohndeere.ie Tickets for €50 can be bought from committee, players, many locals & also online directly here Your support in this would be greatly appreciated as we grow for the future.
The county championship begins in earnest next weekend as we take on Holycross/Ballycahill in the first group game on Saturday 23rd in Clonoulty. Throw in is at 4pm and ticket details will be communicated early next week. This is the 2nd part of a double header in Clonoulty on Saturday with Eire Og Annacarty v JK Brackens at 2:30pm
