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
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
Uncle Sam Needs You Raleigh GAA!
The inaugural Hurling match for UNC GAA takes place against Raleigh GAA this Sunday at McDougle Middle School (900 Old Fayetteville Rd, Chapel Hill, NC 27516) from 10am. The UNC club has high hopes to make it to the collegiate national
tournament in May, and this match is ESSENTIAL to helping that happen. It’s been 2 years since the formation of the club and it’s important for their continued development that these events are well attended. UNC has provided great support to Raleigh GAA hosted events and we are asking anyone who can make the journey to return that support this Sunday at 10am. Drinks and celebrations will follow in Chapel Hill following the Youth GAA event (see below).
