Registration for this year is now being collected by James McGoldrick and is priced at €25 for a non playing member, €20 for student players and €40 for full players. The registration not only covers all insurance, etc but gives members a right to have their say in the running of the club and vote on important decisions at club meetings, etc. Additionally all club members are entered in our annual draw for 2 All Ireland Hurling and Football tickets each September. We are actively encouraging more non playing members to join our club and get involved in its running.

Our lotto draw took place on Sunday night in the Olde Forge with the numbers 14, 22, 29 and 30 drawn There was no jackpot winner. €20 winners were Allish Noonan, Drumlish, James McKeown, C/O Frank Toher, Gerry Rowley, Brian Gallogey, Creenagh and Frank Donlon, Longford.

This weeks sellers prize went to Berney Brady. Next weeks draw for €2,200 takes place in Begley’s bar on Sunday night.  Please continue to support our lotto, either on line or through envelopes in any of our local shops, etc. It is our main source of income and vital in keeping the club running.

Finally our very own Sharon Dunne Donnelly is taking part in the strictly come dancing event in the Longford Arms on the 7th February to raise funding for the attic youth café in Longford. In order to raise funding for this valuable resource she is having a fundraising event this coming Saturday night in The Olde Forge with music by the brilliant Connie Reilly. Every euro raised by Sharon prior to the event is worth one vote on the night with all funding going to the youth café. This is a very valuable cause and we encourage all Killoe supporters to get behind Sharon in this event.
