St Patrick's Day Festival - Lá le Pádraig Féile

As part of the ongoing Fundraising effort for the New Facilities at Park South, Midleton GAA are organising a St. Patrick’s Day Family Festival at the GAA Club. The festivities will start at noon with Carousel, Face Painting, Tug o' War (some teams already in training), Live Music, ‘Great Crane Ball Drop’ plus loads more. This promises to be a great day.

The Crane Ball Drop is an important fundraiser for the new development. With the imminent seeding of 2 pitches and ground works due to commence on the ‘top pitch’ we need to maintain momentum to put the facilities in place for the current and future generations. With attractive prizes of 1st-€3,000, 2nd-€2,000, 3rd-€1,000 and a modest ticket price of €10 we would expect the fundraiser to be well supported.

2 things we ask of each player/family. We ask, if at all possible, for 2 tickets to be purchased by each player/family. Additionally, we would also ask for parents/players to help sell additional tickets. The nature of the good cause and prize fund should make this viable. Each player will be issued with 2 tickets. If a family receives more and are unable to sell, they should be handed back asap.

Club members will be contacted to help and support the efforts but tickets are also available from members of the fundraising committee that include Michael Carroll 086 8362218 (Juvenile), Mairead Beausang 087 2412010 (Ladies Football), Ingrid O’Riordan 087 6374748 (Camogie), Tracy Saunderson 087 6625544 (GAA), Michael O’Connell 087 260 6093 (Chairperson Fundraising Committee). Tickets will be available in GAA on Club Registration Day.

Many thanks for your ongoing help in our fundraising efforts.

45 Drive

Maureen O’Sullivan plays her Ace of Hearts as her Cupid’s Bow intimidates her opponents.  

On a night where romance was on most people’s agenda Maureen O’Sullivan played her ace of hearts to emerge victorious in two of the finals played. Her first victory was with regular Eileen Costine while her second came late in the night with Ballinacurra man Jim Smith. Jerry Beausang kept the Family tradition going taking over from his mother Hannah to win a great final with Dancing guru Denis Crowley. Popular patron and golf classic organizer Jim O’Sullivan coupled with Kitty Griffin took out the third final. Last but by no means least club chairman Liam Ryan partnered by Dina Donovan “stormed “through the field to take the last final of the night despite “Denis” raging outside.  

Results:
1) Maureen O’Sullivan/Eileen Costine, 2) Denis Crowley/Jer Beausang, 3) Jim O’Sullivan/Kitty Griffin, 4) Maureen O’Sullivan/Jim Smith, 5) Liam Ryan/ Dina Donovan. 

Cards continue this Friday February 21st 9pm. All welcome.
