Naomh Conaill Club Notes 5th September 2012

Following the wonderful performance of our county team in the semi-final we find ourselves in the wonderful position of planning for the All Ireland final at the end of September. One of the main tasks of the club over the next few weeks will be in acquiring and distributing tickets. The demand for tickets will exceed our allocation. This will mean that many will be disappointed. The club will initially allocate tickets to full members who apply. If surplus tickets are available these will be allocated by a committee to those active within the club. Any person wishing to apply for a ticket must attend the clubhouse this Friday 7th September between 7 & 9pm. When applying for a ticket each person must apply individually. Juveniles applying must be accompanied by a full member. Anyone wishing to confirm whether they are full members should contact the club registrar David Kelch on 087 9220494. The club would ask all persons wishing to attend the game to also attempt to source tickets independently as this will reduce pressure on our own allocation.
