CLUB DRAW APPEAL - Our monthly club draw has been an important source of funding on a monthly basis for the club, and has been very capably managed by Liam Mullaney in recent years. However, the numbers of subscribers in the draw has declined considerably.

Please consider signing up if you have not done so already, either for monthly debit of 10 euro or a single annual debit for 120. We understand this will not be within everyone's means, so if you want to take part on an occasional basis, there are envelopes in the foyer of the clubhouse for cash payments. The bank account number for debits is IBAN : IE59  BOFI 905328 22439700.
