GAA club membership

The local GAA club wish to advise that club membership must be paid by March 31st as per the GAA official guide. The rates for this year remain unchanged and are very competitive in comparison with other clubs. There is an expectation that our county senior hurling team will do well this year. This will put a demand for tickets which can be purchased through the club. However people wishing to be included in ticket draws must be paid up members by March 31st. This can be facilitated by contacting the membership officer Martin Howard or any of the following club officers: Joe O’Gorman, Michael Jones, Joe Meaney, Neil O’Brien, Pat O’Brien or Patsy Neville. The club also wish to announce that the Annual Golf Classic takes place in the East Clare Golf Club over the Easter week-end and your continued support is much appreciated.
