The club re started the club lotto last Monday evening. There was no winner of the €10,000 jackpot (6,21,23,33) or the Second Chance €500 Draw (24,27,29,35). The €25 lucky dip winners were as follows: Michelle Tooher & Ray Costello (Puckane), Francie Ryan (Ashley Park), Tom Seymour (New York), Patrick Nevin (Johns Place, Nenagh).

Unfortunately, the club grounds in Puckane remain closed for the foreseeable future. Following on from Croke Parks statement, Tipperary County Board have instructed clubs to continue to refrain from organising on-field activity so therefore our GAA facilities must remain closed until July 20th as part of efforts to prevent gatherings which breach the restrictions. Tipperary Co Board is confident that we will still be able to play club competitions this year, subject of course to public health guidance. There will be a phased resumption of training at club level to allow players to prepare appropriately for playing games. No inter-county games are expected to take place before October. The protection of all the people who play and attend our games is of paramount importance and must come before any on-field activities. Getting our championships and leagues finalised in their present format will probably be impossible so over the coming weeks the County Management Committee and Co CCC will draw up possible scenarios based on the potential time frames available. Naturally these will only be recommendations and will have to be approved by Co Committee before seeking a derogation from Croke Park to change our championship structures agreed at the 2019 Co Committee meeting.
Kiladangan Aboard Interviews
Last Saturday saw Kiladangan Abroad return to the USA where we interviewed John Slattery, a member of the large Slattery clan who are based out in the USA and are great supporters of the club. John has been living in the USA since 1993, firstly in New York and now Denver. John talks about his memories of the club and how life is treating him in the US. Check it out at kiladangangaa.com. Keep an eye out every Saturday as we post the interviews. Don’t hesitate to contact Michael Quinn on 087 254 8583 if you would like to do an interview.
Check out the clubs Facebook and Twitter pages where we are posting old photos of club players, members, supporters etc along with some past title wins. We hope to be posting matches in the coming weeks also along with some past match reports. If anyone has any club memorabilia of note, or any club photos that you wish to be posted online then contact Michael on 087 254 8583.
Tipperary GAA Clubs Draw 2020/21
The Tipperary GAA Clubs Draw which was due to commence this month has been rescheduled to commence on Friday September 18th. We are confident there will be a full resumption of games activity well in advance of this date to allow clubs promote the draw. Lár na Pairce office personnel have already prepared the New Draw material and this is ready for collection for any individual clubs who wish to make an immediate start. The Final receipts for the 2019/20 Draw will not be posted out until August 1st which is just about six weeks before the first draw. Enclosed with the receipt will be details of an easy system for paying the new draw subscription on-line if preferred and thus avoiding promoters calling to members houses during the current pandemic.
There has been a baby boom within the parish in recent times and congratulations is in order to Andy and Sinead Slattery on the birth of their daughter Anna, Robbie and Christine Garland on the birth of their daughter Ellie and to Anthony and Aisling McKeogh on the birth of their son Conor.
