Second Laois GAA County Board draw held as over €31,000 in prize money given out once again

A total of 23 clubs had winners in the second monthly Laois GAA €130 county board ticket draw held on Friday night.

The draw was streamed live on Facebook by Laois GAA, with two members of An Garda Siochana acting as the independent observers.

Tom and Breda Kelly of Stradbally scooped the top prize of €10,000 while there were a total of 23 clubs represented among the 35 winners in all – with Ballyroan-Abbey having five winners.

Padraig and Rita Lacey of Ballylinan won the €5,000 second prize while Paudge Phelan from The Harps took the third prize of €3,000.

There were also two prizes of €1,500, one €1,000, nine €500 winners and 20 €250 winners.

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 two more draws this year – on the first Friday in June and July.

The full list of winners is published below.
