A fundraising draw to ‘win a house in Dublin’ has raised €300,000 in 18 days for Roscommon GAA.
The campaign, organised by Roscommon GAA’s commercial and fundraising team, Club Rossie, has sold 3,000 tickets with at least one ticket purchased in each of the 32 counties.
Further tickets have also been sold in 16 countries worldwide.
The house up for grabs is located in Royal Canal Park, Ashtown, Dublin 15 and has an estimated worth of €425,000.
The top selling county is Dublin while there is also significant interest from Roscommon, Kildare, Galway and Meath. The three-bedroom home is developed by Irish home builders, Ballymore and was purchased by Club Rossie for an undisclosed price.
The funds raised will be used to develop the facilities of Dr. Hyde Park and to help implement the strategic plan of Roscommon GAA which includes the future development of the Dermot Earley Centre of Excellence.
A maximum of 15,000 tickets are on sale at €100 each. The draw will be independently audited and monitored and broadcast live on Facebook and Twitter on December 30th.
