Hey, this year some of our wonderful ladies are looking to generate some community spirit for Christmas to provide much needed support to those less fortunate than ourselves. Working along with the Ken Smollen Christmas Food Appeal, they are asking for donations of non-perishable items, and perhaps one or two more luxury items for children, whatever you can afford to give – for those who cannot afford a Christmas this year.  For Example – non perishable items like Breakfast cereals, tea, sugar, tins of beans, spaghetti hoops, dessert rice, pasta and pasta sauce, boil in the bag rice, packets of soup, or luxury items such as biscuits, chocolate, cream crackers, selection boxes, Christmas pudding, toiletries, etc, All donations are appreciated.

Items can be dropped off at -
Frank Fitzgerald pub between 8pm and 11pm every day except Wednesday.
The GAA Clubhouse in Castledaly either Monday or Wednesday 7-8
Anyone not able to donate personally we would be happy to pick up.

Continuing with the goodwill that is associated at this wonderful time of year, Castledaly GAA once again proudly promote their GOAL Mile 2019 charity fundraiser at Castledaly GAA walking track on December 26th between noon to 2pm, inviting everyone to walk a mile with a smile in aid of those less well off than ourselves, both here at home and abroad where natural disasters have devastated people’s lives and robbed them of the essentials of life, food clothing and shelter.  Please support.


The Walking Track is proving to be its popular self at this time of year, providing a safe and well lit environment for our growing numbers of walking warriors who brave the elements daily to enjoy their daily fitness exercise.  The track is open to all club members. 


Congrats to Moate Scor na nOg Junior Ballad group of Cara Johnston, Mia Curtain, Anna Sheerin, James Costello and Ben O Connell who won their County final on Sunday in the Downs at 2pm.  There were great scenes of celebration as they returned to Moate Sunday evening with their trophy and medals, with special celebrations held at Don Allen’s for the new champions and their guiding mentor Louise Heavin.  They go forward to represent Westmeath in the Leinster in a few weeks.  Best of luck to all. 


Our club offers its heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the families and friends of Joe Carroll; Moyvoughley, and Sean Kennedy, Moate, who both passed away recently. May they rest in peace.
