Weekly Notes 22.11.2021   22/11/2021

Reeling in the year

As we have come to the end of another, COVID interrupted hurling year, next week we’ll kick of our “reeling in the year” slot where we’ll look back at the year that was for Cumann Iománíochta, Cnocán Na Biolraí. In a year where we lost some close friends and great club members there were also some highlights and the gradual return to the playing fields to enjoy the sports we all love so much. Each week, we’ll recall 2 months of 2020 and spotlight a team or two from our club in recognition of the community that goes to make up our great club.


2021 AGM – Save The Date

              Please note, our AGM (originally scheduled for November 25th) has now been deferred. Our top priority remains the safety and well-being of all our members, families and the greater community and in light of the current covid situation, we have decided to reschedule to a later date. All members are invited to forward their nominations or motions for consideration to Further details regarding a time and venue will be posted in the coming weeks. As always, new members are more than welcome to attend the AGM as new neighbours in our village are very much welcomed and encouraged to become part of our GAA family.

Pitch Signage & Advertising Opportunity

As we enter a new decade, we do so with great optimism and excitement here at Watergrasshill GAA Club. Later this decade we will celebrate our centenary year, which will be a special milestone. While it's important to celebrate the past and the history of the club, it’s also important we look forward to the future. With this in mind, the club will shortly be undertaking a development project, to prepare the club for the future and further position ourselves at the center of our community. Part of this project will be the development of our existing club grounds. To that end we will endeavor to raise a revenue stream from advertising, while giving businesses the opportunity to advertise their services and reach a wider audience within our community. With the playing numbers on the increase our facility will be a busy spot over the coming years, and we would love to have your name and business positioned in the hearts and minds of all those who visit on a weekly basis. We are offering advertising space via pitch signage, 3000mm wide x 750mm high. These are a 5-year gloss laminate, flash mounted to 0.2mm skin diabond sign. If you would be interested in this opportunity to advertise and support our club, please contact Claire O Leary on 087-6239297 or any member of the club who can provide assistance.
