Shop in Lidl? - then the Ladies section needs your help!
You are most likely aware that the Official Retail Partners of the Ladies Gaelic Football Association are Lidl. Over the last few months they have been building national awareness of their support and they are now looking to support the local clubs. They have announced the details of a fantastic new competition that will directly benefit clubs like ourselves in Ballyboden to the tune of up to €1,000 with a further three €5,000 prizes to be given away via Lidl Social Media channels!
The Club competition will be run in store and will invite shoppers to nominate their club to receive the cash with the overall winners being decided based on who receives the most nominations. Our local Lidl shops in Ballycullen and Nutgrove will provide members the opportunity to nominate Ballyboden as one of the potential winners
This is a major National competition and one that has great potential for Ballyboden Ladies section to benefit from this high profile sponsorship.
We are asking for the support of ALL Boden members when next shopping in Lidl to fill out the nomination card at the till and to choose Ballyboden Ladies as your nominated club.
Thank you on behalf of the Ladies Section

Latest from Twitter
Thanks for everyone's patience but the refurbishment of gym is finally underway. Just some detail underneath that everyone needs to be familiar with prior to work commencing.
· The gym will close this evening (Mon 14th March) and re-open mid to late May
· There will be new rules regarding gym access and usage when it reopens. These will be communicated to the relevant teams before it re-opens
· There will be a temporary gym set up in the two home dressing rooms while the gym is being refurbished
· This room will not be open for general use but certain teams will have restricted use of this temporary gym. Access will only be through the team manager or designated coach
· The two home dressing rooms will be out of use as dressing rooms until the gym project is completed
Hopefully the inconvenience will be worthwhile and we will have a gym that everyone can be proud of.
Thanking you for your co-operation
John Ryan, Chairman, Club Development Executive

Security Message from Club Chairperson
Measures are being implemented that will improve Security policies for Training and Match day events. However on specific occasions at Pairc Ui Mhurchu where social or other events are taking place, we do need volunteers to patrol the car park area. If sufficient people volunteer for this work, it is envisaged that they would only be called upon twice a year [max] for such security. Training & security detail will be provided as part of this programme. Could people advise our General Manager, Noel Sheridan at 087 2933829 or email email@example.com, if you wish to become a volunteer. In this regard, as Chairman, I have put my own name forward as a volunteer.
