Your chance to win a house in Termonfeckin for just €100!

Hubert Murphy

A Termonfeckin GAA club is offering people all over the world to make their new home a local one!

St Fechin's are giving away a house as part of their fundraising campaign for a new community centre for the area.

Tickets, priced at €100, have gone on sale, but the launch will be taking place this Friday at Beaulieu.

It is envisaged that the sales will go worldwide as people aim to move into a fine 4 bedroomed new home in Castle Park, valued at up to €290,000.

There will be other prizes on offer, including a cruise.

The club have even launched a new website for the event - where people can buy tickets.

People who buy a ticket before August 1 will be entered into a bonus draw to win five additional tickets.

The big draw will take place on Sunday 30th December 2018 in the Westcourt Hotel.

Tickets available in person at the following locations: Wogans Build Centre, North Road, Drogheda, Briscoes Electrix Ltd, Donore Road, Drogheda, Westcourt Hotel, West Street, Drogheda. The Design Gallery, St Laurences Gate, Drogheda, The Forge Field Shop & Coffee Shop, Termonfeckin, Termonfeckin Post Office, Dublin Meat Company, Dublin Road Drogheda.

You can also contact any member of the committee in order to buy from them.

'It has created a bit of a buzz,' stated Aidan Greene from the club. 'It's going to make a huge change to someone's life.'

The whole idea for a community centre was born about eight years ago but put on hold due to the recession.

There are a limited 8,000 tickets for the draw.

'35 years ago I organised a £100 draw to get a new gym for Greenhills school and I don't think it would have been there now had we not done that. Funds from this can make a huge difference to the fundraising,' he explained.
