Ferrybank GAA - Weekly Notes


The annual Angela Burns Memorial 10k Fun Run/Walk takes place on Sunday April 24th at 11am starting in the Ferrybank GAA grounds. Registration takes place every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday night from 7pm-8:30pm, commencing from April 5th, and every Saturday morning from 10am-12pm. Entry fee is €10 per Adult, and €2 for the Under 12's. We would encourage everyone from Runners, Joggers, Walkers, Pram Pushers to come along and enjoy this great day out.


Our Junior Footballers begin their championship quest with a home game this come Friday night, April 8th against Ballyduff Lower at 6:45pm. Best of luck lads.


Following last month’s great success in the opening Déise Draw in which Ferrybank had three winners, including the top prize, tickets are still available for the April draw which takes place on Friday 29th. Another eight draws remain in the year, and with 29 cash prizes on offer including €10,000 for 1st prize, tickets cost €10 per month, and we would encourage everyone to purchase a Déise Draw ticket, with 70% going directly back to the club. Tickets can be purchased from Tony Power 086 416 9215, Pat O' Meara 087 210 8890 or Nicky Heffernan 087 672 4212.


The Clothing collection has been extended until June, so if you have any unwanted clothes you want to get rid of, you can bring them down to the GAA grounds on any week night. All clothes, paired shoes, belts, handbags, curtains, towels, soft toys, (mobile phones to be kept separately) will be welcomed.
