On the 5oth year of the All Stars awards it would be remiss of us not to mention our own Eugene Mulligan who was the sole nomination at right half back on the 1971 All Star football Team. Eugene also went on to win Texaco footballer of the year. Eugene gave a wonderful interview over the weekend to mark the occasion with Pat Nolan of the Mirror worth looking it up the Mirrors website.
Birthday wishes are extended to Nanette KIlleen & Nancy Murphy who celebrate significant birthdays this week. Here’s to many more Birthdays to come !!
Rhode Ladies Football club would be very grateful if everyone would get behind their fundraising campaign
We wanted to make you aware that the LGFA’s Official Retail Partner and National League sponsor, Lidl Ireland, has announced a new fundraising initiative through its rewards app, Lidl Plus, ‘Level The Playing Field’ for Ladies Gaelic Football players across the country. From today, Monday 15th February, Lidl is calling on customers to register for its Lidl Plus app, and sign up to the retailer’s fundraising initiative to raise much needed funds for their local club. The retailer will award the maximum amount of €20,000 to the top performing clubs in each of the four provinces. Each time Lidl Plus registered users spend over €30 in store and scan their app at the till between Monday 15th February and Sunday 11th April, they will receive a stamp on their digital stamp card. Multiple stamps can be earned in each shop if a multiple of €30 is spent and once six stamps have been collected, users can submit their completed stamp card via the app and their stamps are then added to their chosen club’s total. Each club that achieves a minimum of 50 completed digital stamp cards is guaranteed a reward, starting from a set of Lidl sponsored jerseys up to €5,000 in cash funding for clubs that collect 500 or more completed stamp cards. Simple Steps 1. Download/Open the Lidl Plus app and follow the prompts on screen
2. Select the club you want to support
3. Spend over €30 in store and scan your Lidl Plus card to earn a stamp (over €60 = 2 stamps, over €90 = 3 stamps, etc.)
4. Collect 6 stamps and submit your completed card by Sunday, April 11th
