DÉISE DRAW 2023:
The 2023 Déise Draw will take place on May 22nd. The draw will remain the same as last year, with six draws taking place. Each draw cost €15 or €90 for the six draws, with the participating clubs retaining 70% of the ticket sales. This is the club’s biggest source of income, and we would encourage everyone to support the Déise Draw for the coming year. Tickets will go on sale shortly.
With sporting activities resuming the club grounds, many people will have seen the progression of the new clubhouse development. This is the biggest capital development project in the history of Ferrybank GAA club. With the recent upsurge in the underage section, this development will benefit these juvenile members and indeed the wider community far into the future.
This project will deliver a new building, consisting of modern dressing rooms, and a community orientated multipurpose rooms for all.
Team 100 has delivered numerous projects for Ferrybank GAA club in the past, including our hurling alley, running track, ball stoppers, pitch drainage, car park tarmacking, and the initial enabling works for this new project. We would ask everyone associated with the club; parents, supporters and players to join Team 100, and contribute to the continued development of the club and community.
Joining Team 100 involves paying a €25 per month standing-order (€6.25 per week) to the club, which covers your full-membership for the year. This works out as the price of a few cups of coffee/tea a week.
Please talk to any member, mentor, trainer or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more details on how to join Team 100.
It’s that time of the year again, with the GAA playing season coming upon us, and therefore we would ask all players to pay their membership ASAP. Adults €80 Students/Unwaged €40.
