Bride Rovers GAA Notes.


Pipped in County Scor Final.


We staged our Leiriu dramatic piece in the Senior Scor County Final; in Ovens on last Saturday night. Ours was an original piece 'Scor Caoga' written by Orla Ronayne Arnold. We were the first of four Clubs in the Leiriu section and took to the stage just after nine o clock. Next up were the performers from the St. James' Club and then St. Johns from Duhallow. The final act was  from our neighbours Cill Uird and Kilworth were excellent. When it came to the torthai (results) we were declared runners up with Kilworth worthy winners. Kilworth performed a dramatic and poignant musical and song tribute the Men of 1798. They will now represent Cork in the Munster semi final back in ovens on the weekend after next. They will hopefully qualify for the Munster Final which is being held in Cork City Hall. Thanks to all our cast members for their performances and enthusiasm -Pa O Driscoll, Mossy O Sullivan, Orla Arnold, William O Leary and John Arnold.

CLUB 100.

This time last year the Bride Rovers Club launched the Club 100 Fundraising Campaign. As we head towards the Club Centenary in nine years time we realise that Club facilities have to be upgraded and improved and new amenities installed. Finance is vital and the Club 100 project aims to provide an ongoing Income stream to ensure we are in a position to continuously improve. We are asking Club supporters and friends to pledge a set monthly amount to the Club on an ongoing basis. We have three options or packages Gold, Silver and Bronze. Depending on your subscription each month you are joined as a Club Member and also in the weekly Club Lotto and if you wish the Monthly Cork GAA Members Draw. WE were delighted with the response last year and are now launching our 2019 recruitment drive to get more members to join the Bride Rovers Club 100. Club Members will be contacting supporters over the next month or so or if you wish to join just contact any Club Officer. On Friday week February 22nd we will have our first Club 100 Bonus Draw. All those who joined during 2018 as Gold or Silver members are invited to a function in The Rathcormac Inn where 12 prizes will be drawn on the night. The first prize is €1000, 2nd prize is €500 and there will be ten prizes of €100 each..
