Donegal town man Michael Roarty was said to be bouncing up and down with delight when he won two golden tickets for this weekend’s All Ireland Football Final in Croke Park.
Michael runs a very popular bouncy castle business and is now the lucky owner of two lower Cusack Stand tickets and 250 euro tucked in his pocket thanks to Four Masters GAA club.
From Clar, just outside Donegal Town, he scooped the first prize in a draw which was run by the club to raise funds to pay off the loan for the new training pitch they have developed at Tirchonaill Park. Michael commented, “I got the call from Eamonn Gorrell, Chairman of Four Masters, and I couldn’t believe it. It was a huge win and the prize is just amazing. There are close relatives of mine in Mayo searching everywhere for tickets so they may be getting an early Christmas present from me!”
Eamonn Gorrell, Chairman Four Masters, added, “the club would like to sincerely thank all our members and friends who supported and purchased tickets and made our draw a huge success so as to help with our financial commitments on developments at Tirchonaill Park. Also we wish to thank the committees and sellers who made a huge effort in last few months”.
