There was no winner of the Rhode GAA Lotto Draw that took place on the 16th of January for a Jackpot of €15,000.  The numbers drawn were 2 6 14 17.  The club would like to thank all those who supported the draw and thanks to O’Toole’s for the use of their premises and for their help and cooperation.  The following matched three numbers and received €100 each: Pat MaManus, Declan Nolan

The Rhode GAA Lotto is the main source of income the club has and now you can play online though our website.  The good news is when you play the lotto online you are entitled to free draws, for example pay for seven draws receive the eighth one free, pay for fourteen draws receive two free and so on.  In other words, the more you play the more free draws you are entitled to.

Rhode & Croghan Senior Citizens Party 

On Sunday evening last members of the Rhode Senior team along with manager Paschal Kellaghan, Chairman Joe Malone, vice chairman Oliver Murphy and P.R.O Robert Kellaghan attended the Senior citizens party with the Dowling and Casey Cups.

Thanks to Peter Kilmurray and all the volunteers for their hospitality massive praise must go to them all for the great work they put in to organise and run such a great event.
