All here at Milltown/Castlemaine GAA wish to extend our deepest sympathies to the family of the late Ciara Orme who died on Thursday last.
Our thoughts are with Ciara’s husband John, her children Charlotte and Rory and her extended family and friends.
May Ciara rest peacefully in the company of the angels.

Save the date:This Friday November 30th 2018 @7.30 p.m. …….and just a few days of to go to our AGM.  It is such an exciting time to be part of our GAA Club here in Milltown Castlemaine with the tremendous work being done at present. The development of our new ‘all weather’ training and playing surfaces, along with a state of the art gym, clubhouse and walking track will ensure that the present and future generations of our community will have the best possible facilities available to them.
There is no better time to become involved. If you would like to be a part of the executive or any aspect of the club, why not get in touch with our club chairman Podge Leane or coaching officer Ian Twiss. Remember your small contribution could make a HUGE difference.
Hoping to see you on the night.

A huge congratulations to Killcummim and Dr. Crokes who were crowned Munster Champions last Sunday  Well done to you all.

The next draw in our fundraising Lotto Jackpot is this Friday night, November 30th in Langford’s Bar, Milltown with a jackpot of €5,800 and €200 for a match 3.
It has been a very lucky time for many people supporting our Lotto -particularly since mid August when Billy Sheehy, Milltown scooped the jackpot of €20,000. A few weeks later, we had a double match 3 with Eileen Sugrue, Lissivane and John Foley, The Square sharing a €700. Then it was John Quirke’s turn from Castlemaine to win the jackpot of €6,400. So as you can see, it’s well worth investing in a ticket with lots of money to be won whilst supporting your local GAA Club.
So with just 3 weeks to go until  Christmas… it sure would be a brilliant time to win some money. This time it could be you!
So head on out and buy your ticket to be in with a chance- available at local businesses in Milltown Castlemaine and Ballyfinnane.
