Fundraising Draw A Fantastic Success.


Castlelyons GAA Club Fundraising Draws.

Fundraising for a club in the present financial environment is very
difficult and when Castlelyons GAA club decided to run a fundraising
draw no one could have forecasted what a fantastic success it would
be. This success was down to a dedicated group of sellers who worked
tirelessly and availed of every opportunity both at home and abroad to
sell cards. Synonymous  with the success of this ongoing initiative
has been the generosity of the sponsors who have been magnanimous in
their support.

These sponsors include McCarthy Insurance Group, Lagan Group, East
Cork Oil, Peddler's Rock Bar, Suit Distributors Cork, Bord Gais
Networks, Fitzgerald Bros, Metrology Systems and Services, The
Farrier's Bar, Glanbia and The Grand Hotel, Fermoy.

The initial draw took place in The Peddler's Rock on Saturday
September 14th which resulted in the following prizewinners.

for the rest of the half with R Bransfield scoring a goal for
Castlelyons before Kiltha Og replied with a goal to level the scores.C
O'Flynn ,R Bransfield and S Moroney all had points before half time to
leave Castlelyons leading by 1-07 to 1-06. Kiltha Og scored 2 goals in
the first 5 min of the second half to take control of the match and
built up a strong lead with S Moroney ,R Bransfield and M Cronin
scoring for Castlelyons.Kiltha Og controlled the game to the finish
with C O'Neill scoring the last 2 points for Castlelyons. A good
performance by a Castlelyons team who were very young with the panel
considerably reduced because of injuries. On this note the club wish
Michael Geary a speedy recovery as he faces surgery on his  cruciate
ligament which he damaged in the last minor championship game.
