Rebels’ Bounty Draw for December 2021

Watch the draw back below


Seánie O’ Leary – RIP

The death has taken place of Cork Hurling legend Seanie O’ Leary. The Youghal club man passed away at the age of 69 with his place a Leeside legend long secured, winning four senior All-Irelands as a player and two as a selector.

Regarded as a supreme goal scorer, Seanie was a member of the three-in-a-row winning Cork forward line from 1976 to ’78 and a champion again in 1984 before his retirement, and in the process amassed 30 championship goals in just 36 games. One of his most iconic goal was the goal he got again Offaly in the Centenary Hurling final of 1984 in Thurles. Those heroic displays gave him his third All-Star, to go with awards in 1976 and ’77. He also lined out in All-Ireland finals in ’72, ’82 and ’83, and finished up with nine Munster senior medals and four leagues, to go with his Celtic Crosses. He was All-Ireland minor winner in 1969 and ’70, and won three All-Irelands at Under 21 level. Seanie was manager of the Imokilly team that won back-to-back senior counties in ’97 and ’98. From there, O’Leary stepped up to a Cork management role and again trophies followed: the 1999 All-Ireland, with Jimmy Barry-Murphy at the helm, and in 2004 under Donal O’Grady.

County Board Chairman Marc Sheehan led tributes to Seánie O’ Leary and expressed the sympathy of the Board to Geraldine, Aideen Tomás , Ciarán and their extended family on the passing of a true icon of Cork Hurling. Seánie made an enormous contribution to Cork teams as a player and later as a mentor. Cork G.A.A. salutes his achievements as a goal scoring forward from the 1970s and 1980’s All Ireland winning  senior teams and also as hugely influential mentor in 1999 and 2004.

  2. Identify Club projects – e.g. pitch development, schools coaching etc
  3. Local marketing campaign – create your own brochures, videos, club letter
  4. Create a bundle / package – e.g. Club membership, Lotto & Bounty combined
  5. Migrate / merge existing fundraising schemes – e.g. Club 300 draw
  6. Internal Club Prize Pot – i.e. local winners guaranteed
  7. Create database of potential customers – members, players, electoral register, extended families, local businesses, ex-players, ex-pats & overseas
  8. Direct communication methods – phone, door-to-door, club text, club letter etc
