Rhode GAA Supporters Draw 

We are delighted to announce a great new initiative for our club The Rhode GAA Supporters Draw:

Many Of our member's would not be aware of the costs of insurance and affiliations which is over €1000 per team. We have 13 teams in the clubs. At the moment membership charges are very low in comparison to our neighboring clubs which are roughly around €100 per child player and up to €150  for and adult player. This year we have not changed our membership fee but we are asking that maybe you would consider taking part in  the following options below. As a club going forward we need to bring our facilities up to date. We need new dressing rooms to accommodate all our teams and ladies teams. This is in our 4 year plan for the club. In year 1, we hope to apply for planning permission for new dressing rooms. We need everyone's support in bringing our club up to date with other clubs around us. This is a large project and will be a benefit to Rhode GAA and also the Community. Our success on the field is not reflected in our grounds. We need to work together to achieve our goals.
