€600,000 worth of tickets sold in FF draw

"See you in Coppers." The celebratory cry of the Dublin football captain Bryan Cullen after their 2011 All-Ireland final victory might also be declared by Fianna Fail leader Micheal Martin.

His party's annual Super Draw was won by the wife of the owner of the famous Dublin nightclub Copper Face Jacks (a well known late-night haunt of some TDs).

Fianna Fail sold around €600,000 worth of tickets – the most successful raffle to date. Tickets sold for €50 each.

Last year, the party brought in €540,000 and party sources say there were 10pc more people buying tickets.

The first prize was a brand new Nissan Juke, won by Paula Jackson from Castleknock.

Her husband, Cathal Jackson, won an iPad in the draw.
