Davitts GAA Club, after a hugely successful footballing year, have launched a major fundraising drive (well cycle actually). The senior squad and some committee members will embark on a 50 km sponsored cycle on St. Stephens Day, from Ballindine to Kilkelly and back, in order to raise funds for our All Ireland Intermediate Championship campaign. Connaught champions Davitts will play the Leinster champions, either Confey from Kildare or Eire Og from Wicklow, in the All Ireland semi-final, with January 22nd the likely date. The winners will then play the All Ireland final in Croke Park in February.
This group of players have brought so much pride to the Ballindine/Irishtown area in winning the Mayo and Connaught titles and they are not finished yet. In these very difficult economic times, all sponsorship will be greatly appreciated, from any corner of the globe.
The club would like to thank every body who supports our Presto Lotto draw each week and also the annual County Board draw. Without this source of income our club could not survive. A special thank you to our on-line players who, however far away from home they may be, are playing their part in our club’s success.
