Results of third Laois GAA €130 ticket board draw

A total of 24 clubs had winners in the first monthly Laois GAA €130 county board ticket draw held in the LOETB Centre of Excellence on Friday night.

Because of restrictions on gatherings due to the Coronavirus outbreak, club delegates weren’t allowed to attend.

But the draw was streamed live on LaoisToday Facebook and by Laois GAA.

For the second week in a row, Park-Ratheniska were the winners of the top prize as Diarmuid and Ann Drennan followed Sean Conroy by scooping the top prize of €10,000.

Patrick Hamm of Ballinakill won the €5,000 second prize while Castletown’s Colm Peters won the €3,000 third prize.

Camross and Emo had four winners, Stradbally had three while Errill, Clough-Ballacolla, O’Dempsey’s, Graiguecullen and The Heath had two each.

Ballinakill, Castletown, Ballyfin, Colt, Portlaoise, Rosenallis, Abbeyleix, Barrowhouse, Rathdowney, Ballyfin, Park-Ratheniska, Borris-Kilcotton and The Rock GAA clubs all had one winner.

Laois GAA Chairman Peter O’Neill was present while so too was Development Officer Ger Slevin and Hurling Board chairman Tom Clear.

Sergeant Derek Kent from Portlaoise Garda Station observed the draw.

In total the Laois GAA clubs sold a combined 7,650 tickets – which was up 750 on last year. This give the clubs a total combined profit of €732,665.

This draw, which has been running since 2000, is a huge annual fundraiser for the clubs.

Depending on a club’s status there is a levy of tickets they have to sell with all of that money going to directly to Laois GAA.

But once they go past the levy, €115 of each ticket sold goes to the clubs. There will be one more draw this year.

The full list of winners is published below:
