We smashed both targets in style! 😃
The distance travelled yesterday was well over 2,000kms.
75% on foot from people of all ages and around the world. The target was €4,000 and we surpassed that and managed to get in €5,510!
Thanks to each and every one of you for participating, donating so generously and coming together as one community around Castlecomer and surrounding areas.
Great to see, great to be part of and most importantly we have helped in a small way towards one little boy and his family’s goal to receiving suitable medical treatment for Dan.
It was brilliant to see all the clubs posting up, people of all ages taking part and some great family moments throughout.
The go fund me page has now closed and we will hand over the proceeds to do it for Dan campaign.
One thing for certain about Comer and the surrounding area, when the need arises we won’t be found wanting!👏👏
Tomorrow Erins Own,alongside other sports clubs in Castlecomer, are taking part in the do it for dan fundraiser. Can we encourage as many of you as possible to take part in this great community effort.
All the details to donate are up on our clubs Facebook page.
Encourage your friends and family to take part too and most importantly donate to the fund and help us reach our target.
Best of luck and thanks.

We have decided, following advice, to suspend our lotto until further notice. This is in the interest of everyone’s health and safety.
In the meantime, We have a number of people who have direct debit payments, online purchases and up front payments. We have decided to run a separate draw for this group of people every Monday where we will do a draw for vouchers (3 x €25). These vouchers will be for the local business who have supported our ticket sales and also our club sponsors.
If you want to take part in supporting local business in this challenging time tickets can be purchased online www.erinsowngaa.com/lotto
