The inaugural Donal Bolton Memorial 7 a Side Football Tournament gets underway the weekend after next (first weekend of Feb) in the GAA Field, Geashill (exact day & time to be confirmed next week). The tournament has been set up by the Bolton Family and Raheen GAA to honour the memory of Donal Bolton who represented the club in both football and hurling and who died tragically 2 years ago this month. It is hoped to run the Tournament off each Friday evening if possible over the next month. All Raheen players and playing members (Both Footballers and Hurlers) are urged to come along and take part in what will be a fun and enjoyable tournament with plenty of craic for all involved. It also gives the opportunity for anybody taking part to display their skills to the new Intermediate management team ahead of this year’s playing campaign getting underway. Best of Luck to all involved.
