Results from penultimate Laois GAA €130 ticket draw

A total of 24 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.

Larry Kealy of St Joseph’s scooped the top prize of €10,000 while there were a total of 24 clubs represented among the 35 winners in all – with Ballypickas having three winners.

There was a great spread of winners with Camross, Rosenallis, Courtwood, Portlaoise, Mountmellick, Castletown, Abbeyleix, Ballinakill and Portarlington all recording two each.

Sarah Quigley of Timahoe won the €5,000 second prize while Linda Phelan from Camross 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 one more draw this year – on the first Friday in July.

The full list of winners is published below.
