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 http://swinfordgaa.ie/lotto/
If you wish you can set up a standing order through our club Bank account as follows:
Bank of Ireland, Main Street, Swinford
IBAN: IE28 BOFI 9054 8338 **** ** (Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for full details)
Account name: Swinford GAA Club
Please ensure that you put your name as the reference when transferring money to the club and please e-mail email@example.com with confirmation.
It is the clubs intention to give the clubs share of the first draw to Pieta House and Down Syndrome Mayo and over the next few weeks to have regular spot prizes.
We hope you continue to support Swinford GAA Club and we look forward to hearing from you by 31st May. If you have any queries please contact a club officer.
