Elphin GAA Update July 21st

Best of luck to the Seniors against Strokestown in the Championship on Saturday at 7pm in Kilmore.
Due to continued Covid 19 restrictions a 200 person limit has been placed on all GAA matches for now, this includes all players, management, mentors as well as match officials and stewards. As a result we will only receive 50 tickets to distribute among club supporters, members, club executive and sponsors. If you wish to apply for one of these tickets please email the club secretary secretary.elphin.roscommon@gaa.ie by 9pm on Wednesday evening. Tickets are limited to 1 per person and non transferable so only the person issued the ticket can go to the match. All entries must be in by 9pm on Wednesday evening and the draw will take place on Friday evening and broadcast on facebook.com/ELPHINGAA .

This is the fairest way that we feel the club can distribute the tickets so we hope you all understand. In saying all this we would like to wish our senior team and management the very best of luck in the game in Kilmore. Twitter and Facebook will have all the updates from the game.

Irish Life Healthy Clubs Steps Challenge

Massive thank you to everyone who took part in the recent Irish Life Step Challenge. It was great to see so many people taking part and helping to support the club. The results were released last week and unfortunately we didn’t win the overall competition. It was the taking part that mattered but we did win €500 O’Neills Voucher for the club, which is absolutely fantastic! This will no doubt be put to good use! Thanks again everyone!
