Elphin GAA Sponsorship Draw

Tickets for the 2016 Elphin GAA Sponsorship Draw are now available from Peter Scott or any member of the Executive. The Draw will take place March 19th and the response to date has been excellent. The winner will get their logo on the front of the Senior Team Jersey, the runner-up will get their name on the back of the Jersey and all participants will be listed on a sign in The Orchard and on-line. Last year’s winner was Cllr Valerie Byrne and she chose to put a logo promoting SOS Elphin on the front of the Jersey and the runner-up was John Ames Power Washing.
