Bruree Notes 20/2/2011


Harty Cup: Best wishes to Charleville CBS in the Harty Cup final due to be played at the Gaelic Grounds on Sunday week. Bruree has no representative on this year’s panel but Con Simcox represented Bruree the last time the team reached a final. This was way back in 1938.
Membership: Members are reminded that their annual subscription is now due and should be paid to Kit O’Halloran or Johnny Wall immediately. It is vital that all members have paid their subscriptions in full at the earliest possible date.
Mackey Draw: The Limerick GAA Development Draw will once again be a major fundraiser for Bruree GAA during 2010. This year’s draw features all cash prizes for the ten draws with a top prize in each draw of €18,000 and prizes of €5,000, €2,000 and €1,500 as well as numerous lesser prizes. The subscription is €10 per draw or €100 for the year. You can join the draw with any of the clubs promoters.

Special Olympics Fundraiser- Local Volunteer

Special Olympics, the global leader in intellectual disability will hold the world’s largest sporting event in 2011. On 22nd June, 2011, Donal Deady will travel to Athens, Greece, as one of the volunteers who will support the athletes and families of Team Ireland in the Special Olympics World Summer Games. He feels honoured to have been selected to go to the 2011 games. However each volunteer has to raise €3,250 as part of the fundraising for the Special Olympics.
The proceeds of the local lotto draw which will take place on Monday, 28th February, 2011 will be donated to the fund from Bruree G.A.A. and Rockhill Rovers which he appreciates very much. He would like to encourage you all to buy a lotto ticket for that night to help raise funds. Any other donations would be greatly appreciated. All of the monies received will go towards Special Olympics Ireland and will help create a legacy that will provide greater awareness of the Special Olympics movement.
