“The club are not going to stand still and will continue to push on to develop our facilities to cater for our ever growing club,” a club spokesperson said.
“The addition of a second pitch is much needed given the growth of games in our club area with ladies football building positively as well as the extensive programme of underage boys/girls and adult men.
“ The plan is to continually build our facilities in an incremental way to allow us to grow our games, therefore the support of all our loyal club followers who contribute to our lotto sales, bingo, sponsorships and Club 250 is vital to allow CLG Gleann tSúilí to grow.”
Club 250 provides 50 per cent of the funds raised in prize money.
The draw is over 12 months and will be starting in July 2018 to June 2019.
The total cost of the draw is €240 with an annual prize fund of €30,000 or €2,500 per month.
