Help Aodh Ruadh

Aodh Ruadh are putting together a panel which would be available to help out in various capacities around the club. A small group take on many of the jobs that need done, but there are often those who would like to help out, but who can only do so on a sporadic basis. The jobs we need relief help on include bingo, lotto, taking the gate at matches, helping with refreshments and the like.

A few hours here and there would really help spread the load and relieve the burden which currently falls very heavily on a few people. Anyone who might have an hour or two to spare here or there and who would be interested in helping rebuild their club is invited to e-mail club secretary Emma Gaughan at or text her on 0863039610 to be included on the panel.
