Winners drawn in latest Laois GAA All County draw

O'Moore Park

The third of four Laois GAA All County Clubs Members Draw was held this evening in the Laois GAA offices with the top prize of €10,000 claimed by Noel Maher from Ballaghmore on a Kyle GAA ticket.

Once again a total of €29,000 in prize money was given out in 25 prizes with 20 different clubs represented.

Rosenallis had three winners while Camross, Graiguecullen and Ballypickas all had one each.

Kyle, Slieve Bloom, Ballyroan-Abbey, Arles-Killeen, Clough-Ballacolla, Trumera, Abbeyleix, Crettyard, Rathdowney, Portarlington, St Joseph’s, Ballinakill, Ballylinan, Arles-Kilcruise, Castletown and O’Dempsey’s all had one each.

The second prize of €5,000 was won by Mick Nolan from Slieve Bloom GAA with Dale Phelan from Ballyroan-Abbey taking the €3,000 third prize.

This particular draw is a huge source of finance to Laois GAA clubs. While all clubs must sell a levy with everything from that going directly to the County Board, 90% of every subsequent ticket sold goes directly back to the club.

The fourth and final draw will take place on Friday, June 1.
