For over eight years, the finances of St. Patrick's GAA in Dromahair has largely been supported by a very successful ‘Members Club’ Draw.
With a constant number, of over 100 members paying in €20 per month, the club would not be able to financially survive without this particular initiative.
The ‘Members Club’ has been tweaked over the years into its current form which presents many benefits including, cash payouts each month of €750, automatic club membership (including underage family registration) and free entry into home Senior and Junior League games.
Three Years ago, the draw was further improved with the support of local businesses and the development of an inclusive Loyalty Card Scheme.
Participating Businesses, kindly offered store discounts for those in the ‘Members Club’, which also encourages the community to Shop Local.
Current participating stores are
McGoldrick's Centra, Eamon Devaney Butchers,
The Riverbank Restaurant & Clubhouse Bar
The Blue Devon
Sean McTernan Carpets & Furniture
Ann’s Cutting Corner
Siobhan’s – A Cut Above
Niamh McGowan – Beauty on your Doorstep
John McHugh Tyres
Joe McLoughlin Tyres,
Eileen Crowley – Seventh Sense Teoranta
In 2015, further significant prizes were added, with the kind sponsorship from Centra Dromahair of €1,000 in Holiday Vouchers.
The winners of these particular prizes, Michael Kelly and David McGee are pictured receiving their vouchers from Joe McGoldrick.
