The course will be delivered by Sean Crowley who is the Cork GAA Games Development Officer for the Imokilly division.

Cork Clubs Draw
Many of you will already have been approached to join the draw in recent weeks. The draw is a major fundraiser for Erin’s Own and is vital to club funds to allow us maintain the facilities, pay for floodlights, meet loan repayments, provide equipment for training, cover the cost of coaching courses, etc.
The annual accounts presented and the main AGM last week showed that in 2013 the club incurred a deficit of €25k in its day to day activities and this draw plus the Golf Classic covered that deficit. The cost to enter is €100 and can be paid for by direct debit. Approx. 50% of the proceeds goes directly to the selling club. More details can be found here: http://www.sportsmanager.ie/uploaded/galleries/7_uploaded/Draws%20Brochure%20Web%20copy.pdf
So if any parents would like to enter the draw then please let me know by the end of this week as the 1st monthly draw is on Oct31st.
Football Training Wed 23rd Oct
Please note that football training this wed night will be held slightly earlier form 6.45 – 7.45pm. There is a function for Fr. Greg in the clubhouse at 8pm and a large crowd is expected, so by finishing at 7.45pm it should allow parents to avoid any traffic congestion at pick-up time.
