Win a Dublin City Apartment or €250,000 cash draw will now take place on 11th July 2022.

In February 2021, a newly formed Fundraising Committee of Bailieborough Shamrocks GAA met to brainstorm on how we could generate much needed funds to complete our  clubhouse and grounds that had been left incomplete for the last 14 years.

 

The incomplete facilities in St. Anne’s Park, the home of our club, has been a thorn in the side of every club member for over a decade. However, we recognised that we had the potential to create something special for our town, for our community and for communities beyond on our own.

 

We decided to create a fundraiser giving away an apartment in Dublin that would transform our town, while at the same time offering one person an incredible and life-changing prize. Securing funds to purchase an apartment in Jervis Place, Dublin 1 took an incredible amount of voluntary led work. Once acquired, we began the process of selling tickets for our prize.

 

Running a fundraising campaign like this takes an incredible amount of work, from a dedicated team, and supporters. The reason we set out on this journey was to raise enough funds to realise the dreams we had for our town – to create a safe, indoor and outdoor community facility with social, physical and mental health at its very core, where everyone is welcome. This is much more than Bailieborough Shamrocks GAA.

 

We have now taken the very difficult decision to postpone our draw until 11 July 2022. This fundraiser is a once in a lifetime fundraising project for our club and town, and one that we are determined to make a success. Admittedly, although near, we did not exactly achieve our goals in the timeline that we set. Varying issues that arose, some within our control, and some out of our control, means that we are extending our draw within the limits of our District Court Licence in order to reach our target.

 

We can assure everyone that, regardless of how the rest of this fundraiser campaign performs, one person will walk away with the keys to 90 Jervis Place, Dublin 1 or €250,000 tax free on Monday, 11th of July 2022.

 

Our next Bonus Draw originally scheduled to take place on Valentine’s Day will now take place in March. The exact date will be communicated very soon. This Bonus Draw will remain at €5,000 cash.

 

Every ticket holder will receive correspondence in relation to this.

 

To each and every one of you that has purchased a ticket to-date, thank you for your support. We appreciate your understanding. Best of luck in the draw and we are looking forward to announcing the winner later this year.
