The Club Limerick Draw (Mackey Stand) is now up and running for the coming year. The links on how to join are posted on our Glin GAA Facebook page. You can also ask any member of the club for advice or contact our Draw administrator Carmel Leahy on 087 2897310. You have the choice of buying a ticket for each monthly Draw individually or buying a yearly ticket with a discount. If you’re interested, the first Draw is on the end of March so entrants have to be in by the first week in March. The year part was the most successful ever in terms of Club winners. With Donnie Lyons winning €3000 in May, Dennis Woulfe winning €250 in June, Michael Dillane winning €100 in July, Mary Dunne and Michael Wallace winning €500 each in the December Draw. Hopefully we can keep this winning streak going this year. This is a great way to support our club and county in one draw with the main prize every month €10,000. All support is greatly appreciated.
