Oram club notes

October 27, 2020

SYMPATHY: To the Keenan family, Killygola on the death of Eugene ' Nudie' Keenan, brother of John Keenan, and uncle of club players, Anthony, John, Gerard & Lorcan


ASTRO TURF: Work will commence on our new fully flood lite astro pitch shortly, the facility will be of great benefit to Children, Teenagers & Adults in the community.

The project is 75% funded by the leader project, however we must cover the remaining costs. We had planned fundraising events but were forced to cancel due to covid restrictions.

We are now asking everyone in the area for help. If each family in the area could sell a book of raffle tickets (€10 each, 5 tickets in a book)

The first prize is an all new Renault Clio. All proceeds of the draw go directly to the funding of the astro. Tickets are available in Rooneys shop or can be posted out to you, let us know your preferred option. Tickets and monies to be returned by the 1st December to coincide with the completion of the project.


AGM: The AGM will take place on Tuesday 2nd December, the meeting will take place virtually this year, due to the restrictions. If the restrictions are lifted the meeting will be held in the hall. More details to follow in the coming weeks. 


BIG TOM GARDEN: The tendering process has been complete and works are set to commence in mid November.


GOOD LUCK: To Monaghan this Saturday in the Ulster senior football championship against Cavan,  for the first time since 2003, Oram will be represented on the Monaghan senior championship panel by Jason Irwin. 



SPONSORSHIP: Thanks to Gerry Mc Elroy, Fresh Fruit & Veg, & Chip shop Ballybay, who generously sponsored a set of juvenile kit bags for u12 team, Gerry is well known for his sponsorship of local clubs and we thank him for his generosity.
