MILFORD GAA Club is running a Club Development Draw and the top prize is a BMW 330e M Sport from Colm Quinn Motors.
The draw is part of the club’s 40th anniversary celebrations and aims to raise funds to develop a new playing pitch and all-weather training pitch. The draw will be held on Saturday, 30th December 2023 and organisers are encouraging everyone to get their tickets before it’s too late!
As well as the top prize of a BMW, the Club Development Draw offers a host of other great prizes, including a holiday voucher from Globe Travel worth €3,000, a two-night stay in the Iveagh Gardens Hotel in Dublin, plus €500 spending money, and a two-night stay in the Beach Hotel, Downings with a round of golf at Portsalon. An overnight trip to a Manchester United game is also up for grabs.
Tickets are priced at one for €25, three for €50 and seven for €100.
CLG Baile na nGallóglach President Fergus Friel urged the local community to rally behind the Club Development Draw, emphasising its significance for the club’s future:
“As we celebrate our 40th anniversary, the Club Development Draw represents the next step in future-proofing the club and our commitment to the community.
“We ran our first Development Draw in 2021 to raise the funds to purchase the site adjacent to the existing facilities. We’re now looking to raise funds towards the next phase of the project which is the development of a new playing pitch and an all-weather training pitch.
“There’s still time for the local community to support our Club Development Draw and be a part of our plans. Your support will guarantee future generations access to excellent facilities, giving them the best opportunities to excel in their sport and bring even greater success to the club.”
Club chairperson Aodh McCormack said: “CLG Baile na nGallóglach serves the communities of Rathmullan, Milford, and Ramelton. We have seen a significant increase in membership over the last number of years across the three towns of the parish, particularly among female players.
“Our current facilities are struggling to cater for the demand, so this development is crucial to accommodate the growing membership, which now includes both male and female teams spanning all age groups, from u-7 to u-18 and four adult teams.
“In addition, the training pitch will ensure we have somewhere to train our teams over the winter months, as we currently hire other facilities for this.
“The second playing pitch will help alleviate the pressure on our current pitch, as during the Spring/Summer period there could be games on it every day of the week. Tickets for the draw are available online and from any committee member, so don’t hesitate to sign up and secure your tickets.”
