Letter From Club Secretary
Firstly on behalf of the club I would like to commend all the players, supporters, members, the parents and guardians of our underage players for their continued support and assistance throughout 2015. As a club we are looking forward to 2016 with anticipation and optimism. The club is well on course to open the new club house this year. These new facilities will serve all our teams as well as interested parties throughout the locality. When finished, the facilities will rival any throughout the county and serve the community and future generations for years to come.
The county board, in conjunction with clubs are again running the sale of €100 tickets. The county board have set up a facility whereby tickets can be bought online from the mayogaa.ie website. If you purchase in this manner please remember to pick Davitts as your club.
The cost of the ticket is €100. However, when we reach our quota we can keep €90 from every ticket sold above the quota. Our quota is 75 tickets. We aim to sell well in excess of this amount and with your support we can. A brief summary of outgoings of the club include: County Board levies & referees; €11,500, Transport for underage teams €6,500, Registration of teams, €3,650, loan repayments, €12,000 as well as everyday running of the club.
Davitts GAA are offering full family membership and six chances to prizes worth over €100,000 to purchasers of the €100 ticket. Your membership directly will directly help the club complete the new building this year. The first draw (of six) taking place in May. We were fortunate enough to have plenty of winners in 2015 and hopefully club members can be successful with the draw in 2016. If you have any queries, then please do not hesitate to contact any member of the executive at the numbers above. Here’s looking forward to another great sporting year.
We would appreciate if tickets could be returned to Ronan Kirrane, Michael Waldron, Sean Higgins, Louis Prendergast, Lucy Daly or any club official at your convenience.
Is mise Le meas,
Ronan Kirrane, Rúnaí
