Pitch Development
For many years now the club has been in need of a second playing pitch to cater for the large numbers of players we have lining out each year.
In total we have 24 sides between Men's, Ladies and Juvenile which puts huge pressure on our current facilities.
This year we have been lucky to procure land adjacent to our current premises on which we will be developing an all-weather sand based floodlit pitch along with using some of the land we already own.
The total cost of this development will be €350,000 and to pay for this we are going to be embarking on a major fundraising drive.
Representatives from the club are currently calling to each house in the parish explaining why this pitch is needed and how people can help with our fundraising drive.
This new pitch will be a much needed addition to our facilities and will result in us having one of the finest playing pitches in the country.

The numbers drawn in this week’s Lotto were 10, 12, 17 and 18. There was no winner of the jackpot of €9,600 which means next week’s jackpot will be worth €9,700. The 5 by €25 winners were The Two Mary's, Seamus Commons, Mal Hickey, Bryan Clarke and John Masterson.

Tickets for the Lotto are €2 or 3 for €5. They can be purchased from committee members, Lotto sellers, local shops or you can also play online at http://www.helpourclub.ie/localhome.asp?

Meath Ladies Minors
The Meath Ladies Minors had a very successful season this year with our very own Róisín Commons a key member of their Leinster Championship winning panel.
Preparations are already underway for next year’s Championship with trials scheduled for this Saturday, October 24th at 10:30 in Drumree.
The manager for next year is Boardsmill’s Eamon Murray who was also in charge this year.
Any of our very talented players who are eligible for the Minor grade next year are encouraged to attend.

Meath Ladies U-16
