In accordance with Coivd-19 guidance the attendance for our upcoming Senior and Junior 1st Round Championship Games has been limited to 200 per game.
This figure includes Players and Mentors for each team, Referees, Officials and Stewards etc. The remainder will be divided between both clubs for each game.
This leaves a very limited number of tickets for distribution within the club. Unfortunately, this means that many of our loyal supporters will not be able to attend either game. This is disappointing for the club but we hope our supporters are understanding of this unfortunate situation we all find ourselves in due to the Covid-19 Pandemic.
However, all fully paid up club members who wish to attend either our Senior or Junior 1st round games will have the opportunity to enter a draw to purchase a ticket for one of the games, (priced at €10 for the Senior game and €5 for the Junior game) by texting their name to 087 796 2461 by Tuesday 4th August.
Note: Tickets will be allocated to Club members only.
The draw will take place on Wednesday 6th August. Winners will be contacted by text and tickets will be available for collection and payment on Thursday 7th August at 7.30pm from the GAA Centre.
For those supporters unable to attend, Laois GAA will be streaming the games live from O’Moore Park at a cost of €5 per game, further details are available at https://laoisgaa.ie/laois-gaa-tv-live/
