Dear Member

We hope that you and your family are safe and well in these strange times.

Thank you for supporting Swinford GAA club for the last number of years and we hope that you will continue to support the club.

All club activities have been suspended for the past two months, with no action on our playing fields. The club has been busy, co-ordinating meals and deliveries to those at risk in our community. To assist in this the club has received a grant of €2,000 from the Dept of Rural and Community Development through Mayo County Council.

At the present time the Government have provided a roadmap for lifting the restrictions currently in place but it will be some time before normal club activities will recommence. The club has ongoing expenses in regard to pitch maintenance and insurance costs. The club also wishes to put in place a fund for future development of our facilities.

With this in mind the club has decided to recommence our weekly 50/50 draw from Tuesday 2nd June. Draw tickets will be available in a few businesses open in town and online through
