Sunday Scrimmage and AGM News!

A belated happy new year from Raleigh GAA!!

This Sunday 15th Jan at Martin Middle School 10am – 12
Now that the snow has left us and balmy 70 degree temperatures have
returned, why not join your fellow club mates for a hastily arranged game
of Gaelic Football and hurling? It is the perfect opportunity to burn off
that winter excess, to get out any frustation you had at being house bound
last weekend or even catch up on the latest banter from your friend’s
lives. Plus, the temperatures on Sunday are perfect for playing sport
outdoors!
All are welcome.
PS. Whoever has the hurleys, sliothars and footballs, please bring them.
They probably will come in handy….

Saturday Jan 21st AGM
Just in case you have forgotten, please pencil Sat 21st at 2pm (Location:
Dos Toquitos Glenwood Ave)  into your diaries for the most important club
meeting of the year – our Annual General Meeting.
It will be your chance to have your voice heard and we need to hear from
you, as 2017 is a very important year for the club. Again, everyone is
welcome.

Christmas Party –Tomorrow Night!

The Raleigh GAA Christmas Party will take place at the Hibernian Pub (Glenwood) on Saturday December 10th from 7.45pm to the wee hours. Food will be served and after dessert, we will be handing out the yearly awards. Most Improved Footballer, Most Improved Hurler, Most Improved Ladies Footballer and Club Person Of The Year are on offer. Come down and enjoy the last official club event of the year, the beer will surely flow as will the stories from the past year. If you haven’t managed to make it out to many club events this season, the last one of the year is the one not to be missed!

Pub(lic) League Championship Weekend and Youth Event!

The Pub(lic) League Championship matches for Football and Hurling are upon us this weekend. Taking place at the Raleigh Rugby Complex (7417 Poole Rd, Raleigh. 27610), games will begin at 10.30am on Sunday 20th November. The winning Captains of each match will carry away handcrafted trophies designed by our league coordinator Mia. Drinks/celebrations/commiserations will occur at the conclusion of the Youth event.
 
Youth Event!
On Sunday at 1:30pm, we’re running mini Gaelic football and hurling games for the approximate age group of 8-12 year olds. We’ll aim for one football game, 15 minutes a half, and one hurling game, 15 minutes a half. We will provide hurls and helmets if you don’t have your own. These games will be held after the conclusion of the Championship Sunday games (parents welcome to play in those games!) at the Raleigh Rugby Complex (7417 Poole Rd, Raleigh. 27610). Please email Dara Ó hAnnaidh (daraoh@gmail.com) if you think you will be bringing your child or children to this event so we can plan for numbers!
