Dear Parishioner,

Moyne AC has embarked on a major fundraising drive, Moyne AC Lotto, (in association with Tipperary Community Lotto), to upgrade the current outdoor track, lay a 4 lane tartan track and develop a grass track in Moyne sportsfield at an estimated cost of €200,000.  The current track is in need of urgent repair and it is hoped that the many people who use the track, their families, our parish and beyond will help us in this upgrade.

The club is promoting a weekly lotto with five major prizes each week – a top prize of 5,000 and four draws of €1,000 – at a cost of €2 per ticket.  In addition ten prizes of €20 are also drawn each week and since the club began this lotto over 40 people have been successful in this draw.  The draw takes place each Tuesday night and the results are posted on our website.

As a follow up to this letter, club members will call to each household in the parish seeking your support and outlining the various options available to you to purchase a ticket e.g. a yearly ticket can be purchased for €100, half yearly for €50 or a 10 weekly option for €20.

The success of the Indoor Training Facility (very generously sponsored by the Lisheen Mine) has led to increased club membership, of both juvenile and adults.  Having a safe and suitable facility where children and adults from our parish and surroundings parishes can walk or run, get fresh air and make friends is invaluable.  This upgrade will be of hugh benefit to everyone now and in the future and club members would welcome your support in seeing this project become a reality.

Thanking you.
