Launch of Louth GAA house draw

One of the most ambitious projects in the history of Louth GAA will be officially launched on Friday night in Dundalk.
The Wee County Double House draw is set to finance the development of the new County Ground on the Inner Relief Road.
Tickets for the draw are priced at €100 with two semi-detached three-bedroom houses up for grabs along with a third prize of €10,000 cash, with the draw taking place on Saturday May 16.
One house is located at Sew View Way Dundalk and another house in Beaulieu Village, Drogheda.
The holder of the first ticket drawn will be given the choice of house or alternatively they can take a €200,000 cash prize.
In the event of the cash prize being taken, the second ticket holder will be given the choice of either house or the €200,000 cash.
The official launch of the initiative will take place in the Imperial Hotel at 8pm compered by Brendan Cummins.
Louth GAA Treasurer, Aidan Berrill, will outline the project, while there will also be contributions on the night from both Frank Lynch and Danny Culligan from the organising committee.
Representatives from the Louth football men’s and ladies’ teams will be present along with players from the hurling and camogie teams.
The event is not only designed to launch the sales of the tickets but also to start the process of putting together a team of up to 800 sellers to ensure the project is a success over the next six months.
A maximum of 25,000 tickets will be sold for the draw and Louth County Board have been working hard over the past number of months to get all clubs and supporters of the county behind the initiative.
The Louth Board is appealing to people to buy their tickets as soon as possible and also to keep in mind that a ticket would make a very good Christmas present.
In the build up to the festive season it is hoped that businesses will consider this as an option for a Christmas bonus.
The ambitious €12m project will provide Louth GAA with a 14,000 capacity arena made up of a 4,080 seated stand which contains two kiosks, four dressing rooms, and a physio room.
The standing terrace on the opposite side of the ground will hold 8,470 spectators while there will be two standing areas behind each of the goals, each with a capacity of 725 spectators.
