And just some of the work we've been doing...
One thing that remained constant even during lockdown is our local lotto. Paul Lonergan (former treasurer) was persuaded to stay on as lotto coordinator, which proved to be an inspired decision, especially as our lotto jackpot of €16,800 was won on February 1.
The lockdown followed a month later and it appeared that our main source of income was gone.
Paul urged us to take the lotto completely online and used imaginative techniques on Facebook to spread the word and get people liking and sharing.
The lotto draw broadcast on Facebook every Saturday night at 9pm became a staple of parish life during the lockdown.
It was broadcast from Paul’s house and hosted by his two wonderful daughters each week.
News of the lotto draw spread and Jeddy Walsh, reporter from The Nationalist, called to Paul’s house to see what all the fuss was about. We got a full page of coverage which gave another boost to our lotto.
As the saying goes, “if you are not in, you can’t win”. Rovers’ lotto continues every week online at https: clubforce.com/clubs/gaa- rockwell-rovrs-gaa-
Our lotto committee is made up of Conor English, Paul Lonergan, Tommy Flynn, PJ Moloney, Colm Heaney, Geraldine Cleary, Breeda Hickey.
With lockdown being lifted Rockwell Rovers GAA Club held their postponed Golf Classic in Dundrum Golf Club on Friday 16 July and Saturday 17 July.
Thanks to everyone who purchased a tee box or put in a team.
With the club’s success in winning the county Intermediate Football title and the new development, the club is now, more than ever, going to need every financial assistance possible while continuing coaching and development of our underage teams.
We had a marvellous response with approximately 75 teams taking part and we were blessed with heavenly sunshine that attracted a few late entries. The winning team comprised of Valerie Mackey and Richard, Lauryn and Niall Horgan.
