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.

Please help……

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

Seisiún Sensations

Joe Johnston and his crew took their Summer break last Monday after another very successful Seisiún. The variety of music and songs was excellent and the versatility of the performers was outstanding. Compliments all round to the musicians, singers and dancers on their performances during the year and and everyone is looking forward to their return in September. These monthly Monday night sessions have grown in popularity and the club is extremely grateful for the support of so many people who attend. ¨They have made a massive contribution to our Centenary celebrations¨said Coiste Comórtha an Chéid Chair John Kirwan.

Many of the performers are new to playing music but under Joe's teaching they have made massive strides - interested? then contact Joe on 087 9828769.

Gym Upgrade

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
