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!!

Sympathy is extended to the Heavey family of Tubberdaly Rhode on the sudden death of Joe who passed away on Tuesday of last week and his remains were interred to Rhode cemetery on Saturday.  He was one of the great characters of Rhode who went about his way in a quite manner and he was a man of great knowledge and he was a pleasure to meet.  Joe worked all his life in bord na mona where he was highly respected.  He was also a great supporter of all Rhode and Offaly teams and until recently Joe was at the matches.  He will be missed by all but especially by the Heavey family, friends, neighbours and all of us who were lucky enough to have known him.  We all have lost a great friend.  May he Rest In Peace.
