Monthly Members Draw: Our draw for the 2020-21 year closed recently and we had a brilliant response. Thank you to all those who renewed your subscriptions and to our new members who signed up for this year’s draw. The funds raised go directly to meeting the day-to-day running costs of the club and are essential for maintaining our expanding facilities at Páirc na nGael, including our new walking track. Your support is greatly appreciated. Our monthly draws for November and December 2020 took place recently and can be viewed on the Dromard GAA Facebook page. Thanks to our club treasurer Dermot Reilly and his family for facilitating the draw in their home. Congratulations to the eight lucky winners in the November and December draws. The November winners were: €500 to the Latin School Players with the three €100 prizes going to senior player Oisin Hourican, Crott; Cyril Sheridan (Sheridan Farm Machinery), Hollybank, Arva and Tom Bermingham, Annagh. The €500 prize for December was won by Margaret Masterson, Clonelly while the three €100 winners were Conor Kiernan, Ballyduffy; Bernard Smith, Mullingar and Margaret McEntee (Chic Salon). Thank you to all our members for your support.
