Na Gaeil CLG is organizing an all-sponsored Virtual Race Night for Friday 11th December at 8 30pm.
Because of Covid 19 restrictions, attendance at the Clubhouse is curtailed and, accordingly, we are proceeding virtually with our annual race night.
Whilst obeying Government and GAA guidelines since the re-commencement of activities in June, all of our teams, from U-6's to Senior Men and Ladies , have been training and playing a full season of games at all levels. Costs and expenses associated with a multitude of activities have placed a huge strain on the Club finances. Our income has been hugely impacted as we have been obliged to indefinitely cancel our weekly Lotto and Bingo since the ongoing restrictions were first imposed in March.
We are now appealing to our members, supporters and the wider public to support Na Gaeil CLG at this difficult time by contributing to our Race Night as very many of you have done in the past.
The proceeds will go towards:
- Training, kitting out and travelling expenses for our Senior Men's Team, current All Ireland Junior Football Champions. For the first time in our short history, the Senior Team are currently training for the Semi-Final of County Intermediate C'ship. They also in the final of the St. Brendan's Board Championship.
- Catering for all teams, over 500 boys and girls, from Under 6 to Senior. Our players have played on Kerry teams, male and female, at all levels, over the past number of years including this year when we have both Jack Barry and Diarmuid O'Connor on the senior mens team. Devon Burns, Tomás Ó'hAiniféin, Oisín Maunsell, Enda O'Connor and Jack Sheehan were on the minor panel. Devon Burns was named Electric Ireland Minor Goalkeeper of the Year .Laura Fitzgerald, Megan O'Connor and Mary O'Connell play for the Kerry Ladies.
- Maintaining and upgrading our facilities, indoors and outdoors, including a major drainage project of the playing field, which was completed this Autumn.
- Catering for both Scór Na nÓg and Sinsir.
Buying a horse for €40 will ensure the continued growth and development of Na Gaeil.
