We would like to take this opportunity to say a huge "Thank you!" to all our regular online players, for your support and encouragement since we began in March 2021. Your support has been of great help to the development of the youth facilities in Garrycastle GAA Club.
Equally, another huge "Thank you!" also to all of those in the club who gave of their time and expertise to make the Online Bingo a success, it couldn’t have happened without a lot of hard work from a great bunch of people.
