Club Meeting

There will be a club meeting on Friday 29th September at 7pm in Gateway Hotel.

All Ireland Final Tickets

Due to some hard work by officers of the club we were able to obtain 147 tickets in total over the past week.

93 tickets were allocated to members of our special €150 Club development draw. These are people who have been supporting this draw and the club for the last few years.

33 were given to our Intermediate/Junior teams.

19 to our various coaches and 1 to our sponsor and 1 to the winner of our 50/50 draw.

Unfortunately we would have needed an extra 100+ to satisfy everyone and this was never going to be possible.Not all players, coaches and sponsors obtained tickets. A number of officers gave tickets back to the club.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

The club received an additional 22 tickets last night. We are in the process of contacting all successful members. If you have not been contacted allready you will be by early tomorrow (Friday) afternoon.

If you are not contacted by Friday evening you have been unsuccesful. It will not be possible to get back to everybody who has requested a ticket so if you do not hear from us you have not be successful.

Tickets must then be collected and paid for.

Presently we are at least ten short to even look after club members, players and coaches.

If you have requested a ticket from the club and are successful in obtaining a ticket elsewhere please let us know as this will free up a ticket.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

The majority of our tickets are Hill and Nally Terrace tickets and most stand tickets are in the upper level.

Update on All Ireland Final Tickets

Swinford_GAA_Crest

Here is an update in relation to All Ireland Final Tickets.

As stated in previous messages the club will not be able to satisfy anything close to demand. If you are successful in getting a ticket we will contact you to arrange payment and collection. It wll most likely be towards the end of next week. It will not be possible to get back to everybody who has requested a ticket so if you do not hear from us you have not be successful.

The club has received an initial allocation of 80 tickets been 40 stand and 40 terrace from the county board. On payment of €2,000 to the county board we were able to buy an additional 40 tickets been 14 stand and 26 terrace.

There may be a second allocation next week but right now we have no idea if there will be or how many there will be.

When the club closed its list for All Ireland Football Final Tickets last Saturday there were requests in excess of 230 tickets. As you can see from the maths there is going to be a lot of people who are unsuccessful.

If you have requested a ticket from the club and are successful in obtaining a ticket elsewhere please let us know.

Priority will be given to our members, players, coaches, sponsors and the supporters of our annual club draw. Outside of this there is no chance of getting a ticket from the club. We will not even be able to satisfy all our members, players, coaches, sponsors etc. There willl be no multiple tickets. Also we are quite restricted with stand tickets so please be understanding.

Update All Ireland Football Final Tickets

Swinford_GAA_Crest

The club closed its list for All Ireland Football Final Tickets at 6pm yesterday (Saturday) with requests in excess of 230 tickets.

The Mayo GAA County Board are meeting on Monday evening and it is hoped that the first allocation of tickets will be distributed to the clubs by the weekend.

Based on last years allocation Swinford GAA will not be able to satisfy anything close to the demand.

A second allocation is usually forwarded to the clubs the week before the final. The amount herein depends on a lot of factors and varies every year. We do not anticpate there being a large second allocation.

If you are successful in obtaining a ticket from the club we will contact you to arrange payment and collection. It wll most likely be towards the end of the week of the 11th September. It will not be possible to get back to everybody who has requested a ticket so if you do not hear from us you have not be successful.

If you have requested a ticket from the club and are successful in obtaining a ticket elsewhere please let us know.

Priority will be given to our members, players, coaches, sponsors and the supporters of our annual club draw. Outside of this there is no chance of getting a ticket from the club. We will not even be able to satisfy all our members, players, coaches, sponsors etc.

Based on previous expierence the club will most likely have to meet a levy from the county board due to the increase in their expenditure. As a result we will be fundraising to meet this additional cost. We would ask you to support our 50/50 draw and we will be drawing ten names for the next two weeks (in addition to the ten names drawn last Tuesday) for a draw on Tuesday 12th for an All Ireland Ticket.

We know that everybody wants to be in Croke Park on the 17th September when Cillian O’Connor lifts Sam Maguire but the club is restricted on what it can do with tickets.

Your patience and understanding will be appreciated.

Thanks. Maigh Eo Abu
