Welcome to Portumna G.A.A. Club website. As you are probably aware most clubs are funded by a local lotto and our club is no different. We run a weekly lotto every Saturday night which assists in the funding of the everyday running of the club. This initative helps keep funds in the club and it gives everyone the opportunity to win some cash. Our draw is held on Saturday night in the local pubs and we invite all members, players, supporters and members of the community to support and develop our club and provide us with the first class facilities for all our adult and juvenile players. We invite and would love to get in touch with people from Portumna who are living all over the country to support our lotto.

Portumna is a club who has played a pivitol part in the promotion and development of hurling in Galway over the last number of years having won three All Ireland titles and five county titles in the last seven years. We have provided senior and junior players on numerous county teams.

The lotto starts at 2000 euros and one hundred euros is added each week. Select four numbers from 1-28. If anyone matches four numbers selected on the night they win or share the jackpot amount. If there is no winner then win or share match three prize of one hundred euro. If there is no match three 100 euros is divided between local charities in the community. Tickets can be purchased at 2 euros or three for 5 euros. The club are also selling yearly lotto tickets which cost 100 euros which enters you into 50 +2 free draws. Payment options are available from club treasurer Celia Keane on 087 1342148. We are hoping to get as many people as possible to purchase the annual lotto as it gives the club a platform to budget during the year and it allows members to be in every draw. Results will be posted in the local shops and church newsletter. They are also available on the club websites: www.portumnagaa.ie and www.portumna.net/gaa. We wish everyone the best of luck and thank you for your support.

Fiona O'Meara, Club Secretary.

Club Fundraising

Portumna G.A.A Club cater for adult and juveniles in both Hurling and Gaelic football and as such provide the major source of recreation, competition and entertainment for a large proportion of our community. As such it takes a huge amount of finance to run the club to its current high standards. Having four adult and seven juvenile hurling teams, one adult and three juvenile football teams, it is very expensive to run effectively.

If you would like to support the club, please contact any of the club officers: Celia Keane (087 1342148), Dan Lynch (087 6422424), Fiona O'Meara (086 3478116), or the Club Captain - Ollie Canning (087 6856012).

Brief History of Portumna GAA

Portumna GAA club was founded in 1884. The first county championship won by the club was the Junior crown in 1914. The first Minor 'A' title won by the club was in 1948. Three more titles were added in 1990, 1991, and 1999, and a Minor 'B' title in 1998. This was due to the formation of a solid juvenile structure which brought many juvenile titles to the club in the eighties.

Portumna won it's second Junior 'A' title in 1982 and added an intermediate title ten years later in 1992. The winning of this title paved the way for our first-ever senior title in 2003.

The club went from strength to strength after this adding another three county titles in 2005, 2007, and 2008. On all occasions the Connacht title was added to the county crowns.

The club won the Galway Senior League in 2004, 2005, 2007 and 2008. The greatest day in our long and proud history came on St. Patrick's Day in 2006 when we won our first-ever All-Ireland Senior Club title. We added our second title in 2008 and our third in 2009. Our  U21 team won the 'B' title in January last giving us three titles (1984, 1990 and 2009). Our Junior 'C' team won the county title last year for the first time in the club's history. The club has also been awarded the "Best Club Under the Sun" sponsored by Etihad Airlines.

Portumna GAA Club are indebted to Al and Noreen Hayes of Al Hayes Motors, our club's main sponsor, for their continued financial support and to everyone who has supported the club down through the years.
