Bingo Drive-In Deferred

Due to the rising number of people contracting the Corona Virus and the alarm it is causing in all communities in the region, the Rathcline GAA club have deferred what would have been their very first Drive-In Bingo at their club grounds in Clonbonny.

The club would like to sincerely thank everyone that supported this initiative in a most positive way and offer their help and support. The club looks forward to your support to the drive-in when this pandemic has been curtailed and normal living can resume.

Famous Victory

Last Friday night our Under 12 team travelled to Kenagh for the final of the U12 Cup Group 4 where they took on Wolfe Tones Óg from Edgeworthstown. In their group both teams played six games resulting in identical result sequence winning four games and drawing 2. The two games that were drawn were when they played each other so we knew going into Friday night’s game that this was going to be a close encounter between two evenly matched teams.

Things turned out as expected with the lead going to and fro all through. There was a wonderful dedication and no lack of skill and determination throughout both sides and those in attendance were high in their praise of both sides. Amazingly almost all of the panel are all underage for Under 12 again next year.

After a terrific game our young Under 12’s emerged victorious on a scoreline of 24 points to 21 proving this was a game of high intensity and tempo.

Our managers of Stephen Rooney and James Casey (Carrowstrawley) had the lads primed to a tee and it is a great credit to both men that the panel are such a skilful and talented side. Well done lads.

The panel was led by captain Liam Rhatigan was Evan Rooney, Dan Casey, Callum Farrell, John Farrell, Diarmuid Hanley, Rian Shanley, Mikey Sorohan, Rian Hogan, Alfie Murphy, Tim Kenny, Oisín Dillon, Shane Farrell, Sean O’Dowd, Alex Mc Dermott, Josh Curran, Stephen Farrell and Jack Cassidy.

The club would like to thank Michelle Mulvey for an excellent refereeing performance and the Wolfe Tones Óg team for another cracking performance.  

Semi-Final

On Saturday next 10th at 12noon our Under 16 team will play their semi-final in Kenagh against opponents unknown at the time of writing. We wish the lads the very best of luck.

Good Luck

We would like to wish our near neighbours Killashee the very best of luck on Saturday in their rearranged Intermediate Championship Final.

50th Anniversary

To the very day and date Sunday 20th September the club remembers the first winning of the Intermediate championship. It was the breakthrough that the club had sought for many years previously and following many frustrations the fateful day arrived on Sunday 20th September 1970 in Pearse Park.

Last Sunday the occasion was remembered fondly and received great talk around the parish especially as it was 50 years exactly to the day and date.

Saddle Up Success

Just a brief note on the Saddle Up for Rathcline fundraiser held on Saturday last. The early morning risers and first cyclist had a very special privilege being the very first people to officially cross the new cycleway from Kilnacarrow to Cloonbearla. It was fitting that the sun shone brightly on our historic cyclists.

The day was a huge success and the club would like to thank everyone that supported the fundraiser in whatever way. From what I hear everybody enjoyed their time on the bike through the bogs and onto the Royal Canal as far as Mullingar Pewter and back home to Clonbonny.

A full detailed report will follow next week  

If you did not do the cycle and would like to contribute to the fundraising, you can do so on the Go Fund Me page using the following link

Great work being done

The work on the new development in Clonbonny has already started. David Dowd along with his son Luke have done a wonderful job in clearing the site. The site is on the left hand side of the road when you cross Clonbonny bridge and it is now almost ready for the commencement of this new and exciting project.

This project involves the landscaping and drainage of this currently unused area, erection of a Skills/Sports Wall for children to practice their skills and perimeter fencing on the site. The project also involves the erection of floodlighting and drainage on the existing club practice pitch which is used by all playing members. This area will be focus of our facilities to develop the young talent in the club from ages 6 to 18 years of age. The installation of a Skills/Sports Wall is a critical element of this development.

50/50

The draw of the 50/50 took place on Monday night 7th September in Adie’s Bar.                                      The jackpot pool stood at €191 and the name on the winning ticket was Caroline Gray, Knock Manor.

Saddle Up 

Rathcline Senior, Minor and Ladies clubs are delighted to announce the return of ‘Saddle Up for Rathcline’ for 2020. Building on the massive success of the event in 2019 in improving the facilities at Clonbonny the club has embarked on very ambitious plans for 2020. The club this year, with your support, is going to grow and enhance facilities for the club’s junior members. The club will be unveiling their ambitious plans within the next few weeks.    

A main fundraiser for this project is the ‘Saddle Up’ and that will take place on Saturday next 12th September. The cycle route will be from Lanesboro along the Royal Canal up to Mullingar Pewter and back to the club house in Clonbonny. The cycle is over 120Km and there will be the option of doing the complete cycle or a 15Km or more relay stage. Teams of     4 costs €50 per person. Bicycles will be provided for those on the relays there will be return journeys back to your car.  

The club is hoping that the cycle will have a unique part to it by it being the first to be able to cycle across the new walkway/cycleway. Presently the Born na Mona workers on the project are working very hard to be able to provide a route across.  However, there is a huge amount of work to be done and all we can hope is that there will be a fine weather week ahead to give the workers the chance at finishing the route.            

If you cannot do the cycle and would like to contribute to the cycle you can do so on the Go Fund Me page using the following link

Into League Semi 

Irrespective of the result on Sunday last the senior team were into the League semi-final. That fact did not alter the winning mindset that the team had built up and after an extremely high scoring game they emerged comfortable winner and maintained their position at the top of their group. They now await the runner up from the other group to see who their semi-final   opponents will be. That game will not take place for a few weeks.    

Support for New Development       

Rathcline GAA Senior, Minor and Ladies clubs are preparing to start Phase 3 of its development plan at its club grounds in Clonbonny, Lanesborough, Co Longford, to be completed by October 2020. The club is experiencing a great period of growth with increasing numbers in our underage grades from nursery (under 6s) to minor grade (u18s), a vibrant ladies club at underage and senior level and the emergence of a very talented senior football team. The clubs continue to be the heartbeat of our community bringing our parish together to enjoy GAA activities.  

In 2019, the Rathcline GAA Pitch Development committee was appointed and quickly set about an ambitious 5-year development plan for the club’s facilities. Please view our Pitch Development video to show the work completed to date and our ambitious plans for 2020. https://youtu.be/YCmwgJKkn9I 

During 2019, the committee organised a very successful sponsored cycle “Saddle Up for Rathcline” to purchase and install an electronic scoreboard in Clonbonny. 

The next phase of development involves the development of additional 1.5 acres of club owned lands into a playing/training area for our underage players, both male and female. This area is located across the road from the entrance to the grounds. 

This project involves the landscaping and drainage of this currently unused area, erection of a Skills/Sports Wall for children to practice their skills and perimeter fencing on the site. The project also involves the erection of floodlighting and drainage on the existing club practice pitch which is used by all playing members. This area will be focus of our facilities to develop the young talent in the club from ages 6 to 18 years of age. The installation of a Skills/Sports Wall is a critical element of this development. This video gives an introduction to how this Skills/Sports Wall will help to develop our young talent.  https://youtu.be/7q1pdP-QV-0  

To help fund this project, the club’s pitch development committee is organizing a sponsored cycle along the Royal Canal Greenway on Saturday 12th September. This year’s cycle will mark the opening of a new cycle route which links Lanesborough to the Royal Canal Greenway at Killashee, making it possible to cycle from Lanesborough to Dublin on this Greenway, passing by the gates of Clonbonny GAA grounds. 
We would be very grateful if you could consider a donation to this project which will help the club to develop improved playing/training/coaching facilities for our growing numbers of underage players. We aim to complete this Phase of the Development by October 2020. We have set up a GoFundMe page for our project fundraiser.     https://www.gofundme.com/f/rathcline-gaa 

Clothes  Collection 

Over the coming weeks a new 1.5 acres training area for players of the senior, ladies and minor clubs will be developed in the area across the road from the gate to the Rathcline GAA clubhouse/grounds and the installation of floodlights on the training pitch in Clonbonny.
To add to the funds raised in the Saddle Up for Rathcline Cycle taking place on Saturday 12th Sept to fund these developments , we would be very grateful if you could bring any old clothes to Clonbonny next Friday 4th Sept from 6.30-7.30pm.
The clothes will be added to the ladies club clothes collection. The Ladies club is very generously donating the proceeds of this clothes collection to help fund these projects in Clonbonny. Every bag of old clothes will help to make these projects happen. A collection point for the bags at the main gate will be in place for next Friday 6.30-7.30pm.
