Ferrybank GAA - Weekly Notes

Juvenile Nursery:
The Ferrybank GAA & Camogie club will commence the nursery for boys and girls, aged 5 and 6, on Saturday March 5th in the local GAA grounds at 10am. The Club Nursery Programme teaches children the basic movements and skills required to play Gaelic games. These include agility, balance, co-ordination, running, jumping, throwing, catching, kicking and striking.
The Club Nursery targets 5-6 year olds and is a great way to introduce new children and parents to the club. All equipment (hurleys, helmets etc.) will be supplied. For further information, contact 087 6724212.
We achieved Level 1 last year and we are hoping to complete Level 3 next year. The targets get higher each year, and we will need every help we can get to achieve our goal. ALL NEWCOMERS WELCOME!

Have you a wardrobe of unwanted clothes, or some mobile phones lying around the house? If so, then why not get going on a spring clean and help out Ferrybank GAA club at the same time!? You can drop these items into Ferrybank GAA grounds on Saturday April 2nd from 10am-1:30pm.
Any clothes, paired shoes, belts, handbags, curtains, towels and soft toys can be donated. Mobile phones to be kept separate please. Alternatively, then you can drop them into the club grounds on Saturday mornings from 10am-12pm.

Déise Draw:
The 2016 Ferrybank GAA Club’s Déise draw will commence on Friday March 25th and continues monthly for 9 months. 70% of all funds collected go directly to Ferrybank GAA club.
This year’s top prize will once again be €10,000, 2nd prize will increase to €2,000 while 3rd prize is €1,000, with 27 more cash prizes to be won each month. The club will be hoping for continued support from our membership and hopefully we can encourage a few more to help us continue to keep Gaelic Games alive in Ferrybank. Contact Nicky Heffernan (087 672 4212) or any other committee member to get your ticket.

With the playing season upon us, membership for the coming year will be as follows, Adult €70, (option to include Déise draw ticket – €120), Student/ Unwaged €30. We would ask all players to pay their membership ASAP.

Hard luck to Iona Heffernan who was part of the UCC team that was defeated by UL in the final of this year’s Ashbourne Cup.
