Gaels Scoop Lidl Prize


Ranelagh Gaels recently won €1,000 in backing from Lidl Ireland’s community fund and on Monday the club received the cheque form members of the local Lidl store.

Pictured along with ladies team captain Maria O’Neill and club chairman Barry Coogan are Lidl’s Trish Byrne, Deputy Store Manager, Sean Richardson, Store Assistant, and Metedi Kokenou, Store Assistant.

Lidl are major backers of ladies football and the presentation comes just ahead of the All-Ireland ladies football finals at Croke Park, with the senior decider featuring the showdown between Dublin and champions Cork.

Everyone at Ranelagh Gaels would like to express our thanks to everyone who supported our funding bid and, of course, Lidl for their generous contribution.

A club executive decision has been made to terminate the monthly club lottery. The club lottery is not sustainable, some months we have ended up paying out more than we have taken in. We have found it very difficult to drive ticket sales and seek willing ticket sellers each month. There will be NO draw in August 2016 or forthcoming months. The rolling lotto balance will be reinvested into the club. The club fundraising committee will endeavour to replace the community and club member interaction with alternative events to support and contribute towards the costs of running the continued growth of our club and demand for gaelic games. We would like to thank everyone that purchased tickets over the years and of course to all members (and ticket sellers, you know who you are!) that managed the admistration and processing of the club lottery during this time. We are extremely grateful. Please direct any queries via
