On Sunday next, 26th April, our very own Anton Sullivan will be joining Adrian Foy of Clonmore Harps , Cian Donohue of St Brigids and Cathal Smith of Rhode Ladies in a community 1000km run/walk , they are aiming to get at least 200 people to do a 5km within their own 2km radius which will accumulate to the 1000km target .
Each participant is asked to donate €20 which will help 1yr old Dan Donoher who suffers from Spinal Muscular Atrophy receive vital medical treatment in the US , this is costing $2.1 million. Please everyone get together to stay apart and support our community effort .
See Rhode GAA Social media pages for link to donate #DoitforDan

The club 200 draw deadline for entering was set for the end of March. Obviously, with restrictions in place it has become difficult to gather all entries by that date. Many people have already paid up and we will work with others to gather payment at suitable times and in suitable circumstances.
We have decided to push out the date of the first draw indefinitely and therefore the deadline for entrants can be extended. However please note that the deadline for becoming a full member of the club is still set at 31st March.
. Entering this draw will provide you with the chance to win 1st prize €1000 & 5 chances to win €250 in each draw and there are 5 draws taking place throughout the year. That’s a total of 30 chances to win over the year.
