Club 500 is a monthly draw organised by Castlegregory Community Council.
It’s purpose is to raise funds for the Community Council and help them in their ongoing work to improve the area for the benefit of all. This year we have launched a new website (as you can see) that will attract more visitors.
We are re-entering the Tidy Towns Competition, keeping local areas looking their best which not only makes the area more enjoyable for its residents but also has a positive impact on tourism. We will continue with our routine work of supporting the community to the best of our ability. We have some other exciting projects coming on stream in the near future.
Membership to this club is by way on a monthly contribution of €10. The draw will consist of monthly, quarterly and annual prizes. By entering you have a chance of winning one our many prizes. Prizes will increase as membership increases. There will be a maximum of 80 prizes annually at full membership. Club 500 will be limited to 500 members so now is the time to show your support and join family and friends from hear and far in this community friendly draw. You could be the next big winner. Information is available at the information center, on this website or from any member of the council.
