We rely on the support of the community to help us provide the facilities and coaching our teams need. We are grateful for everything we receive in donations and run fundraising events regularly to meet our needs.

Oyster Festival Fundraiser
Thanks to everyone who came out last Friday the 9th of September to support the Oyster Festival and our fundraising efforts. With €10 of every €20 ticket going to the club it was great to see so many people out enjoying themselves and benefitting Colga! Thanks to the Oyster Festival Committee for giving us the opportunity and to Jerry and PJ for manning the ticket booth!
Cash for Clobber The 'Cash For Clobber' drive which finished during the Easter football clamp was a great success and raised €805 for the club. Thanks to everyone who donated and to Sinead Haugh and Cathy McDonagh for spearheading this initiative. We will plan to run another one at Halloween this year so start bagging up that old or unwanted clobber in preparation.
