Club Lotto Matters

White’s Cross GAA greatly appreciates all the support being given to the Club’s Lotto over the years – míle buíochas to all those who buy tickets. All money raised goes towards the improvement of the infrastructure at White’s Cross GAA pitch, and it is fair to say huge improvements have been made to our facilities over the past number of years: new juvenile pitch, hurling wall, walkway, astroturf, outdoor gym equipment, new dressingrooms & meeting room, upgrade of surface on main pitch etc. The latest project this summer has been the addition of ball-stopping nets on the main field at an extension to the upper net on the juvenile field.  Dug-outs for the main field are also in the pipe-line.  Without the finance provided from the lotto these projects would simply not have been possible.

White’s Cross GAA also appreciates the support of the local businesses, in facilitating the sale of tickets – if you are in a position to support these businesses please do – let’s keep it local when and where we can folks!  Tickets can be purchased from the following locations: The Boothouse Bar, The Stirrup Bar, The Blackman Bar, Hennessey’s Daybreak, Southern Fuels Bucklearys Cross, McCarthy’s Sport Shop Glanmire, O’Ceannaigh Bar Glanmire & Esther’s Barbers Glanmire. Tickets can also be purchased from Lotto Committee Members.

Alternatively tickets can be bought online – visit whitescrossgaa.ie for details.
Tickets cost €2 each or 3 for €5. Alternatively a yearly ticket can be purchased for €45 – note these can only be purchased from a member of the lotto committee – get in touch with any member you know in the Club and they will point you in the right direction.

Back to School… Back to Normality

With the summer holidays behind us, the children back to school, and some sort of order and normality restored to the weekly routines, now might be the ideal time to get your child involved in a new hobby.  White’s Cross GAA caters for both boys and girls of all National School ages and always welcome new members for all their teams from 5 years to adult ages.  A special welcome will be given at this time of year to those starting out in ‘BIG school’!

Throughout the summer months a number of the different age-groups altered their training schedule to accommodate those heading away for weekends etc. Many of the age-groups will revert to the ‘normal’ Friday 6 to 7pm slot at White’s Cross GAA Grounds – later in the autumn when the evenings draw in and get chillier the younger age-groups will move indoors to the Upper Glanmire Sports Hall.  However we will stick to the outdoors as long as the weather is kind to us!

If you are interested in getting your son / daughter involved with White’s Cross GAA, feel free to come along on a Friday evening, from 6 to 7pm, to our club grounds in Ballinvriskig – coming from the school at Upper Glanmire and heading towards Cork City take the first right turn and our pitch is located up there on the right hand side.  Alternatively feel free to get in touch with one of our juvenile coaches – contact numbers for the various teams are listed below.  Beidh fíor fáilte romhat.
