The IRFU along with their community rugby partner, Ulster Bank are once again running the fundraising initiative Your Club, Your Country Grand Draw. Last year, over €628,000 was raised by rugby clubs across Ireland. All the prizes are provided by the IRFU and their family of partners, which means that Sligo RFC are free to sell up to a maximum of 1000 IRFU Grand Draw tickets and retain 100% of the amount from those sales to support the club. There are ten amazing prizes, ranging from a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Australia to follow the Ireland Rugby Team on their Summer Tour 2018, to a €5,000 holiday voucher, to VIP 6 Nations and Galway Races Packages.
All 100 books of tickets have been distributed and members are reminded that the deadline for returning the tickets is next Sunday, 18th November.
With the 6 nations fast approaching the Ireland coaches have named a 40-man squad, which includes three uncapped players, for the opening two rounds of the 2017 RBS 6 Nations Championship.
Hooker Niall Scannell is named in the forwards and is one of the three uncapped players in the squad. Scannell captained the Ireland Under-20s at the Junior World Championship in 2012, leading them to the semi-final.
Sligo RFC has access to a small number of tickets and as members are aware the Club Facilities Development investors have been given priority for this three year period. As a result the limited remaining tickets will be available to members, who should complete this form – International Ticket Order Form 2017.
The Annual General Meeting of Sligo RFC will take place on Tuesday June 28th at 8pm at the Clubhouse in Strandhill.
All members are invited to attend and new members will be made most welcome.
The management of the Club is entrusted to the Committee and the finishing touches are being applied to the incoming Committee for the 2016/17 season. Anyone interested in joining the Committee should contact the Club Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org.
