There was no winner of the Rhode GAA Lotto Draw that took place on the 16th of January for a Jackpot of €15,000. The numbers drawn were 2 6 14 17. The club would like to thank all those who supported the draw and thanks to O’Toole’s for the use of their premises and for their help and cooperation. The following matched three numbers and received €100 each
The Rhode GAA Lotto is the main source of income the club has and now you can play online though our website. The good news is when you play the lotto online you are entitled to free draws, for example pay for seven draws receive the eighth one free, pay for fourteen draws receive two free and so on. In other words, the more you play the more free draws you are entitled to!!

A deep sense of sadness fell on Rhode village when the news came through that one of Life’s great people Claire Quinn had passed away. Claire will be sadly missed by all who knew Claire especially her loving sons, Dermot, Sean, Raymond, James, Francie, Paddy and William daughters Annette, Oonagh, Edel and Martina, grandchildren, great grandchildren, extended family and her many friends. Claire’s funeral took place on Tuesday afternoon in St. Peter’s Church Rhode which was followed by burial to the adjoining Cemetery.
May the Light of Heaven Shine down on Claire May She Rest in Peace
