Brosna GAA Club and Divanes Castleisland teamed up at the weekend for a unique fundraising raffle of a very stylish VW Golf Petrol R-Line 1.5 TSI which was launched by the club on Friday morning. 

The proceeds from the raffle are going towards the renovation and extension of the clubhouse and dressing rooms. 

It’s wonderful that the club, which has such wonderful amenities, is now working towards bringing the standard of its facilities in line with the pitch. 

As well, a drawing of the plans is on display at the clubhouse. 

Raffle tickets available at Murphy’s Foodstore and online through the Brosnagaa website. 

Please support this worthy cause and who knows you may be the lucky ticket holder travelling around in a stunning VW Golf after the draw is made in October.  

Please visit to watch the video that sets out all the particulars of the proposals.
