June 24, 2019

Rathnew Gaa 1885 is the clubs one and only official Facebook page. Any other page with our name has nothing to do with our club is not run by anyone in our club.


Jerseys and any club gear are now on sale on the Rathnew shop on the O'Neill's website or just follow the link on our Facebook page 


We had no winner of the lotto jackpot on the 17th June. Numbers 5, 7, 11, 18. We had 8 match 3, Clara Franey, Aine Fogarty, Pat Dunne, Jan Kearney, John Doyle, Catherine & Willie Clark, Sheila Douglas, Micheal Vickers. At the time of writing the jackpot stands at €11,300. Get your tickets from Doyle's, The Arches, The Village Inn, Rockies, Healy's Mini Market, View hair & beauty, Malone's, Dowling's Butchers and Centra every Friday and Saturday evening from 5.30pm. Thanks to everyone who supports our lotto. 


Membership is now well over due. It is vital that all adult and juveniles pay their membership or they are not covered if injured. If no effort is made to pay then they will be unable to train or play. Contact the team coaches for membership details.


The 2019 Kellogg's cul camp dates have been released. Rathnew will be hosting it the week starting the 12th of August. It's always a brilliant week for the kids so book early on kelloggsculcamps.gaa.ie or follow the link on our Facebook page.


A massive thanks to Gaelic Plant Hire for once again coming on board as the main sponsor of the juvenile section of the club. Thanks to Keith, Noel and team for their continued support.


We have got our new fence finished on the clubhouse side of the pitch. We'd like to thank every member, supporter, lotto ticket sellers, lotto ticket buyer and anyone who has supported the club in anyway because without your help none of this would be possible.


Thanks to everyone who attended and supported the fun day on Saturday. It was a great day in glorious sunshine. Thanks to Tom Clancy of "Apex spray foam insulation" for sponsoring the day it was a massive help for the club. Thanks to St. Pats and Avondale under 7's, Neddy Duffy, Colin Hindle, Dainty Bakery, SuperValu Wicklow for the buns & rolls. Apex, Burkes hardware, The Woodpecker, Colm & Amy Tierney who sponsored prizes. We also did our annual kick fada competition with Dale Franey taking the men's and Millie Tierney taking the ladies.

The under 9s had another monster blitz in Ballinakill on Saturday which was a great success. The u10 boys had a great victory away to Tinahely while the junior B team kept up their 100% record in the league beating Newcastle 2-12 to 0-9. Hard luck to the seniors who lost the league semi final 0-9 to 0-8 against St. Pats. Hard luck to JT, Sam, Ciaran the county u20s who lost to Wexford in the Leinster championship on Saturday. The u16 girls had a great win at home to Newtown 8-7 to 2-12 while the u12s had their first match in division 1 unfortunately losing out Tinahely but a fantastic effort from the girls to be playing in division 1. Fixtures this week are u11 red away to An Tochar and green home to Bray both on Wednesday at 7 while the u15s play Eire Og in Ballinakill also on Wednesday at 7.15. The junior B team are away to Kilcoole on Friday at 8. The minors are away to Baltinglass on Monday at 7.30.
