Results of fourth and final Laois GAA €130 ticket draw

A total of 26 clubs had winners in the fourth and final 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.

Mountmellick were the winners of the top prize as Thomas Culleton scooped the top prize of €10,000.

Dom Dooley and Michael Lyons of Arles-Killeen won the €5,000 second prize while Annanough’s Shane Stapleton won the €3,000 third prize.

Park/Ratheniska and Rosenallis had three winners while Graiguecullen, Abbeyleix, Rathdowney and Timahoe had two winners each.

Ballylinan, Ballypickas, Portlaoise, O’Dempsey’s, Shanahoe, Emo, Courtwood, Camross, Kyle, Stradbally, The Harps, Ballinakill, Killeshin, Crettyard, Clough-Ballacolla, Portarlington and Ballyroan-Abbey all had one winner each.

Laois GAA Chairman Peter O’Neill was present while so too was Leinster Council delegate PJ Kelly 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:
