GAA club in Louth has hands down the best raffle prize of all time

Conan Doherty

Have 100 quid to spare? Sure you might as well buy a €280,000 house with it.

That’s right. You read that correctly.

St. Fechin’s GAA club in Louth are raffling away a four-bedroom semi-detached house and it could be yours for 100 quid.

Working with a local developer, the club secured a house in Termonfeckin’s Castle Park development, which is in close proximity to the stunning Termonfeckin beach, two schools and two world-class golf courses –Baltray and Seapoint.

If this thing was going in Dublin, it’d be worth 21 million euro. At least.

There are €300,000 worth of prizes up for grabs in the draw which obvioisly includes the house but the draw won’t take place until December 30.

As well as the house, there are a range of other prizes available, including a Mediterranean cruise, a four-ball plus dinner at former Irish Open host course Baltray and an all-expenses paid trip to Barcelona.

It’s safe to say that St. Fechin’s are going big with their 2018 raffle.

You would be forgiven in the past for thinking that GAA prizes were a little… well, GAA.

In Laois, they were giving away a shed.

And who could forget the famous heifer?

Two quality prizes for the right person but, now, a four-bedroom house in Drogheda is something every person on the island would want.

We’re talking about a quality building, expensive, bordering north county Dublin with a direct train into the city. This isn’t a token prize, this is the real deal.

But tickets are capped at 8,000 so, presumably, you’ll have to get a move on.
