Corduff club notes

January 03, 2018

Lotto:

Our club Lotto will resume on Sunday 14th January 2018 with the draw taking place in The Mountain and the Jackpot will be worth €5,000. The lotto was hugely successful in 2017 and we would like to extend our gratitude to all who supported the lotto on a weekly basis, our yearly members, to the weekly lotto sellers, the pubs which facilitated the lotto draw every Sunday and to the Lotto Committee. We look forward to your continued support in 2018.

 

Happy New Year 2018 / Bliain úr faoi shean is faoi mhaise daoibh:

We would like to extend best wishes for a very happy, healthy and prosperous new year / blian úr faoi shean is faoi mhaise daoibh go leir to all our players, members, loyal supporters and sponsors across all codes men / ladies and handball and to the wider Corduff / Raferagh community and beyond. Let's hope 2018 will bring continued success both on and off the pitch as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the club.

 

As 2018 begins it's time to reflect on 2017 which was a truly memorable year for the club.

Some memorable highlights were:

*The relaunch of the weekly club lotto

*Scoil Phádraig and Corcreagh NS both became county champions

*The establishment of the Ladies juvenile structure

*Juvenile boys were crowned county champions at both U12/U14 levels

*Feile Peil na nOg, an action  packed GAA weekend when we hosted teams from Boston and Kildare

*Reserve Men's team won the double making it the first silverware since 2010

*Many Handball success stories at county level

*The sports story of the year had to be the rise of the Senior Ladies team to become the first Corduff team to reach an All Ireland Final

*The largest attendance ever recorded at a Corduff match was when the Ladies played Cuala in the All Ireland Semifinal.

 

We would like to extend our gratitude to all our volunteers and to members of the various committees that work away tirelessly in the background all year long ensuring everything is in place so our members can participate at the highest level possible.
