GAA club offering chance to win €280k four-bedroom house in local raffle

A GAA club in Co. Louth is offering locals the chance to win a family home worth €280,000 in a raffle.

Tickets for St Fechin's ‘Win a Feckin House’ competition are being sold for just €100.

Up to 8,000 tickets are available for purchase, and other prizes include a Mediterranean cruise, a bathroom makeover and an LED TV.

In order to buy a ticket, you need to be a social member of St Fechin’s GAA.

The winner will be announced on Sunday, December 30, 2018, in a hotel in Drogheda.

The club has drafted in everyone’s favourite Irish turkey, Dustin, to help promote the competition.

Club chairman of finance, Aidan Greene, told the Irish Independent: “We’ve had people buy tickets as birthday or wedding presents.

“One man bought each of his grandchildren tickets. Another woman said she couldn’t afford a house deposit for her children, but she could afford this. It’s €100 that could change someone’s life.”

The club aims to build a community centre with the money raised.
