Our fundraiser for 2003 was officially launched in Joe Danís Pub on Friday last. The Tourlestrane GAA Club Development National Lottery Syndicate is confined to 250 members and each member will be asked to pick 2 sets of  numbers which will be played twice weekly in the National Lottery. These tickets can by purchased by one annual subscription of €260 or by Direct Debit Monthly €21.67 or Quarterly €65. This is a weekly cost of only €5. Our young players are the future of the club and it is important that they have the facilities needed to develop their full potential. Over the next 3 years the club will be redeveloping the pitch to an all weather surface at an estimated cost of €300,000. With government realignments forecast for the near future, State funding will not be as plentiful as in previous times. The club will once again be seeking the generosity of the people of Tourlestrane to undertake this major redevelopment and your support would be greatly appreciated.
