Dear Club Members/Parents.
As you know, Kilmeena G.A.A. Club have embarked on a development programme in an effort to substantially improve the facilities at our Club. We will be developing a new playing pitch, to cater for all our underage teams, alongside this we intend to develop an all-weather training area, running alongside the main pitch and we will also construct a kicking wall for all players to hone their skills. A building will be constructed alongside the kicking wall, to incorporate two dressing rooms, a small indoor training area (gym) and storage facilities for the mobile goalposts and machinery.
We submitted an application for funding to the Sports Capital Fund and we were very fortunate to receive €80,000 towards the cost of this project. The, overall cost of the project will be in the vicinity of €120,000, which leaves a shortfall of €40.000, which the club will have to raise. We have the capability and the ability, with your help and continued support, to raise the necessary funding without putting too much pressure on the club or its members.
The National Club draw is an initiative by the G.A.A at National level to support clubs. The total amount of monies raised from this draw will remain in the club.
The tickets cost €10 each, with 5 tickets per book. This year we have decided to ask each Club member/Householder to take a book in an effort to maximize sales and to share the workload. I am asking that each household/club member would make a huge effort to sell a book of tickets.
I am acutely aware of how difficult it is to have finance in order to meet the needs of daily living and, more especially, when rearing children. l am asking you, if you possibly can, to sell the complete book and return the names and the cash to the club officers before the 30th of November 2015.
Please contact Padraic Moore, Treasurer, 087 2861190, Paul Ryan, Secretary, 087 2809524, Willie Keaveney, Chairman, 086 2592837.
Thank you for supporting this project, and when complete, please remember that it will be your children and grandchildren who will benefit from it.
