‘Lily the Limousin’ up for grabs in GAA club’s fundraiser

Lily, a 21-month-old 560kg Limousin-cross heifer, is among the prizes up for grabs in Carbury GAA’s fundraising campaign.

The initiative aims to raise funds for the development of facilities for all ages at the club, which was founded in 1925.

A spokesperson for the Parsontown, Kildare-based club told editor, Catherina Cunnane:

“Our first prize would take pride of place in any herd. As part of the prize, we will also deliver the heifer to any location within the Republic of Ireland, provided the winner holds a valid herd number.”

“If farming is not your fortè or if you do not have a herd number, do not worry. In this case, we will sell the heifer in the mart and all proceeds will be passed to the winner,” the spokesperson added.

2nd prize will take the form of a one-night bed & breakfast in Burlington Hotel, while third prize is a €100 voucher for the Grille Shack.

4th prize is 5 tickets to the ever-popular Young Wolfe Tones who are returning to Carbury GAA this Christmas.

Tickets are priced at €10 each or 3 for €25 with a night of country-themed entertainment planned for the night of the draw.
