As you know, those wonderful people on the Bar Committee of the Tolka Park Bar ran a raffle for Chocolate Footballs at Easter – all profits going to the Fooball Club.
Originally there were two Chocolate Footballs being raffled – one inscribed with Shelbourne FC and one with Dublin.
There was so much interest that two extra footballs were added to the draw – making four in total.
It will be remembered that the winning number in the raffle for each ball (each raffle being confined to forty-five tickets 1 – 45) was to be the number on the ‘bonus ball’ for the main lotto draw on Saturday night. So shortly after 8pm on Saturday the results were known. They were:-
Shelbourne Ball 1 – Winner: Niall Fitzmaurice
Shelbourne Ball 2 – Winner: Andy (in Bar)
Shelbourne Ball 3 – Winner: Liz O’Loughlin
Dublin GAA Ball : – Winner : Stephen Daly
The winners of three of the footballs donated their prizes to The Children’s Hospital, Temple Street, where they were very gratefully received when delivered there on Sunday morning by Murtagh Daly
Thanks to everyone who purchased tickets for the draws in either the Tolka Park Bar or in the Shelbourne Souvenir Shop at Tolka Park.
