Edenderry GAA notes
Club Membership Registration
Our Membership Registration is now open online for 2017. This year we are offering members the opportunity to play our Development Lotto for the year at a discounted rate when they pay membership. The higher your membership fee, the greater your lotto discount. Ladies membership can also be paid to any ladies committee member or any Friday night in the GAA grounds between 5pm and 7pm. See www.edenderrygaa.com for more details.
Club planning application
In April the club received a request for Further Information from Offaly Co. Co. in relation to certain aspects of our planning application. Unfortunately this introduces a delay to our programme of works but the Club will be working with our design team in the coming weeks to get the additional information together and lodged to the Council. Once we make our response a decision will be due within four weeks.
In any event the pitches need a few more weeks of growing in before they will be playable, however they are coming along nicely. They have been fertilized and aerated in recent weeks and with temperatures set to rise next week the growth should follow.
Bingo and Lotto draw takes place every Sunday Night at 8pm in the Clubhouse, Doors open at 6:45pm ample supervised car parking on the GAA grounds. Over €5,000 in Bingo prize money can be won next week at our bingo. Congratulations to Amy Murrin who won €1,000 in the flyer game.
