Please play your part in the promotion of Glenelly GFC. It’s important to give something back, and one day our youth will thank us for it! Check out our Club Website www.glenellygaa.com for further details. We are currently promoting our GAA fundraiser draw and we are asking our Senior players, our Cairde and Club members, to sell just one book each – every book contains 5 tickets@£10 each, and 100% of the proceeds of tickets sales remain within the Club! Athbhliain faoi mhaise daoibh We would like to wish everyone a Happy and prosperous New Year and we were delighted to meet up with many of our relatives and friends who had travelled many miles to be in Glenelly during the festive period.
