Draw envelopes are now also available at 3 for €5.

Thanks to everyone for the support. The draw is a year old and in that time over €50,000 has been given out in prize money and donations have been made to local schools. Now of this could be done without the support of the Swinford community at home and away, thank you all.
The proceeds have enabled the club to upgrade the playing surface of Robert McCallion Memorial Park and invest in gym equipment. All our trainers and juvenile players have been decked out in the clubs colours.
The club is currently developing plans for improvements to our facilities especially for training for all levels of the club.
