As this is our first notes back in the New Year, forgive me for saying it, but on behalf of Watergrasshill GAA Club we want to wish all our members, supporters and families in our community, our best wishes for 2020 We hope it’s filled with laughter, happiness and good health. Thank you all for your continued support and we look forward to 2020 and a great year for the club.

Training Sessions

Nearly all our teams are now back training for the coming season. If you want to know days and times please reach out to any club member who will assist you, or e-mail us at New players are welcome and of course we would love to see more parents get involved in 2020. There is a great social side to the club when you get involved and any help is always greatly appreciated. Best of luck to all our club teams in 2020.

2020 Membership and Registration

2020 membership is now open for renewal and open to new members. We ask and encourage all members to pay on line via our website. Adult membership €50, Juvenile/Student/OAP €25. We also have family membership available on-line. Our social membership this year is €20 and we would love to see new members from the community join the club, perhaps the social membership would be of interest in this regard. Club membership numbers is an important parameter as the club seeks funding for facilities development this year, so as always, thank you sincerely for your support.

Garda Vetting

All officers, mentors, coaches, first aiders are asked to make sure their Garda vetting is up to date. This is a legal requirement for coaching and any activities regarding underage players. Any queries please contact Aine O Leary or Richard Gardiner, our child welfare officers.


On January 20th last we had a winner of our club lotto jackpot. This had rolled on for several weeks and stood at €19,600. Congratulations to John Murphy from Bartlemy on his Jackpot win. John bought the winning ticket in Johnnys restaurant in the village, who have been great supporters of the club for many years. John was presented with his win by our club Chairman Jerome Buttimer. We were delighted a gentleman and regular player such as John picked up the Jackpot win. Wishing you the all the best John, spend it wisely! While on the subject of lotto, a word of thanks also to our lotto committee, who give up some free time every Monday night to look after the draw. Thank you Noreen, Dick, Eddie, John, Aine, Tadgh & Jerome. Tickets (€2) available to purchase locally at The Hut Bar, O'Mahony's Bar, The Fir Tree, Johnny's Shop and Restaurant and Ross’s Centra.
