Please like and share these notes to help us grow our reach.
Stradbally GAA Club are hosting a fundraising table quiz in Aid of the Field Development fund at 8pm this Friday the 20th of July in the GAA center. There will be lots of good prizes on the night and we ask all our players and supporters to come along and enjoy a great night’s entertainment.
Our field development is gathering pace with drainage is now laid and over 2000 tons of sand spread onto the field this week. We are currently constructing a retaining wall between both fields and a hurling wall will be incorporated into this new wall. The seeding of the field has had to be delayed owing to the current drought conditions but as soon as the weather breaks the field will be seeded. Once completed this will be the finest field in the county. Your support is needed now more than ever, please support our 50;50 draw and all other club fundraising initiatives.
Best of luck to our Figure Dancers who will represent Stradbally and Waterford next weekend in the Munster Fleadh in Ennis. They will compete in under 12 and under 15 in 8 and 4 hand figure dancing.
400Km Fundraising Cycle
Stradbally GAA are running a 6 county cycle in association with Mental Health Awareness which will take place on the weekend of September 14/15/16. The cycle is in aid of the Stradbally GAA Pitch Development fund. The group will leave Stradbally on Friday the 14th of September and travel through Cork, Limerick, Kerry (Cross the Ferry in Tarbert) to Clare and then onto Tipperary before finishing up back in Stadbally on the Sunday. If anyone wishes to take part in this cycle they can contact Trevor Curran on 087 6547600. We are asking supporters and parents to consider getting involved by either cycling the three stages or taking part in the Final stage on the Sunday from Tipperary to Stradbally. All participants will be selling lines on a sponsorship card and we ask the community to support these people as the money raised will go towards our new field.

U9’s (Born 2009/2010)
Our U9’s and U10’s played against Brickey Rangers last Saturday in Stradbally. Both teams played their heart out in very hot conditions and all players felt the heat after the game. The skill levels on show by both teams was fantastic and bodes well for the future of our club. These children have grown throughout the season due largely the input of the parents who encourage them to practice their skills as much as possible. Stradbally would like to thank Brickey Rangers for two very sporting games and we will return the fixture in the coming weeks.
