Please support our Club Lotto as this supports the day to day costs of running the club. Club lotto envelopes can be got from any of the local shops and pubs, at Bingo on Monday nights or from any of the committee members. The Lotto draw takes place every Monday night during bingo in the local Community Centre. The Cost is just €2 a ticket. Currently the Jackpot stands at €2,570. There was no winner of last week's jackpot where the winning numbers were 2, 4,11 and 20. 20 euro winners on the night were Cian Reilly, Paddy O'Sullivan and Jean Balfe - well done to all.
St. Stephens day 5k walk
As is almost a Christmas tradition at this stage, St. Pauls GFC will again hold its 5k walk/run this coming St. Stephens day at 12 noon starting at the Clonmellon Community Centre with all proceeds going to the local branch of St. Vincent de Paul. It's €10 euro to enter, €5 euro for kids and €20 for a family. There will be no official timing for the race - it's just a bit of fun to raise some much needed funds for those less fortunate in our local community so please try and join us on the day.
St. Pauls GFC will hold their AGM on Friday 5th January next at 8pm in the Clonmellon Community Centre. Please come along and hear our review of 2017 both on & off the field and have your say in the future of our club. We are always looking for new people to join us on our committee or even just to help out the club in any little small way so if you are interested please come along on the night.
