Monster Blitz and Balloon Race

Castlelyons Juvenile GAA is holding a Monster Blitz on Sunday the 26th of August. This Blitz is being held instead of the Family Fun Day which unfortunately has become a victim of our wet summer and clashes with championship matches etc. Proceedings are due to kick off around 12 noon on Sunday the 26th with 5 visiting clubs and matches planned at U6/U8 and U10 level. Teas/coffees and a monster raffle are also planned for the day.

The spectacle of over 1,000 multi coloured balloons being released into the sky, was one of the high lights of last years’ Family Fun Day and so this year the Balloon Race is back by popular demand. The majority of the balloon tickets have been sold but there will be some tickets available to purchase on the day at €5 each with some great prizes. First Prize is a 42″ flat screen TV, Second Prize a Smartphone and Third prize is a digital camera.

So why not come down to the pitch on Sunday 26th to see some of the hero’s of tomorrow in action. This is your opportunity to support your local club and who knows you might even take home a great prize.
