Clontibret Club Notes 02.03.2023
Clontibret 240 Club
Are you a member of our 240 Club, or have you been in the past? Whether you are a current member or a lapsed member or perhaps never had the opportunity to join yet now is the time to consider it. Active members of our 240 Club will by now have received correspondence outlining how your funding has been used over the past year and development plans for the coming year. We will be starting our funding campaign earlier this year as we prepare to surface and line the new car park among other projects and hope to get all wrapped up before the end of March. So when your promoter calls please give them a good hearing and if you are one of the many people who use the excellent facilities at O’Neill Park and haven’t yet had the opportunity to contribute please contact any club official.
New Season Format
The format for the upcoming season will be broadly similar to last year with a single round senior league due to begin on Saturday April 15th. The championship will also retain the league format of the past few years with the ten senior clubs playing off in two groups of five. These group games are due to begin on the weekend of August 13th. We will again have two reserve teams operating in Divisions 1b and 3 with games due to begin on weekend of March 18th. There are no actual fixtures out yet, just indicative dates.
Well done to our representatives on another great victory against Roscommon last Sunday. Next up is away to Galway this Sunday where we wish the boys the best of luck in their quest for another two league points.
Ulster GAA Charity Sky Dive
On Sunday 12th March nine GAA stars from across Ulster, one from each county, will take to the skies for the UGAASkydive in aid of both the Air Ambulance NI & Prostate Cancer Research at QUB. Representing Monaghan will be our very own Dessie Mone, former championship winning club captain and double Ulster championship winner with Monaghan. All Clontibret and all Monaghan people are asked to get behind Dessie in this worthy fundraiser with donations to be made at https://ulster.gaa.ie/skydive
