TABLE QUIZ

To start off the 2023 season we are running a fundraising Table Quiz in The Old Thatch, Killeagh on Friday 3rd February at 8.30pm. It is €40 to enter a table of 4. We look forward to seeing as many people as possible supporting our club and enjoying a good night out. Thanks for your support.

MEMBERSHIP

Please note registration is now open online on the GAA’s Foireann portal at returntoplay.gaa.ie

It is very important that all players register as soon as possible so the club secretary can register all players for the Injury Fund scheme. We would ask that all players to have their membership paid prior to taking to a training session.

As always, we encourage as many members and families as possible to become either SILVER or GOLD supporters in the Killeagh GAA Supporters Club. This greatly helps our finances on a monthly basis and provides additional benefits to members.

If you have any queries, please contact our Registrar, Colman Motherway on 085-7540973 for more information.
