Club Notes for w/ending Sunday 12th June 2016   07/06/2016

With only a couple of weeks to go, Registration for our Cycle Rally this year will be closing soon ( We're back again for our third year, however, this year we are joining up with St. Kevin's BNS to help celebrate their 40th Anniversary so the rally will take place a little earlier than previous years, on Saturday the 25th June. We are also opening the rally up to all clubs within the community to raise funds for themselves (the only requirement is the initial registration fee of €35 per cyclist goes St Kevin's Killian's GAA, all sponsorship money raised on sponsorship card goes to cyclists chosen club). So please share the rally and date with as many people as you know. To sign up a club, please contact a club executive member (contact details can be found on our website ( Anyone looking to do the cycle should start practice cycles soon. We are hoping to organise some practice cycles in the coming months so keep an eye on our Facebook page.

The Club are participating in the 'Cash for Clubs' scheme with Topaz. Every time you fill up with €30 of fuel at participating stations, the Club gets 1 point. With enough people participating, we can win a share of €250,000. You can register the club against your 'Play or Park'  account if you have one, our club number for the scheme is 2304.

Our next Monthly Draw will be held on Sunday 26th June in the Kingswood Lodge and is limited to 150 tickets at a cost of €5 each, prizes are 1st - €200, 2nd - €75, 3rd - €25, 4th - €25 and 5th - €25.  Tickets are available through a number of club members and some tickets will also be available on the night of the draw.
