GAA NATIONAL CLUB DRAW 2017
The GAA National Club Draw has raised over €6 million for clubs over the past three years. The sole purpose of the Draw is to assist clubs in their drive to raise much needed funds to aid in the development and the promotion of our games.
The draw will take place on the 8th March 2017 in Croke Park. Our very own club secretary John Dowd was a big winner in this draw last year. To bring a local element to the fundraiser, we are independently holding a draw and social night in Begleys on Saturday night the 17th December for all tickets sold up to that point. Prizes of €500, €250 and €100 will be on offer in this draw.
GAA NATIONAL CLUB DRAW – BENEFITS:
- This is an opportunity for your club to raise up to €20,000.
- Your club will retain all the proceeds raised through the sale of tickets.
- All prizes are provided by Ard Chomhairle.
