Our minor team of Kilmore/Shannon gaels had a good win the the league on Wednesaday evening last.  


50/50 draw

Our Club is hoping to soon launch our new fundraiser 50/50 draw to raise funds for future development of our grounds. Tickets will cost €2 each or 3 for €5. The draw will take place every second Sunday night. They way the draw works is 50% of the total amount raised is given out as a prize at each draw. For example, in a 2 week period we take in €500, then the prize that week will be €250 and €250 will go towards the development fund. We will have 12 captains who will have 5 on their team. Each team will be on selling duty twice in the year. We will publish our captains next week. Anyone who wants more details contact Brian Carroll 087-2420896.
