Sisters raffling farmhouse in tribute to deceased parents

You could be in with the chance of winning a “dream” mortgage and finance-free Donegal farmhouse on the Wild Atlantic Way, along with over €57,000, for just over €10.

The Gallaghers, four Donegal sisters, are offering 150,000 tickets via Raffal up for grabs for the farmhouse they grew up in, along with a stone hostel, campsite, and outbuildings.

They will donate 5% of all proceeds to Beaumont Hospital Foundation in honour of their parents who sadly passed away less than 8 weeks apart in 2018.

Their parents, Ben, and Lyndall, ran a hostel beside the farmhouse for years. Ben suffered a spinal injury as a young man and had to learn to walk again.

He passed away in March 2018, while Lyndall was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2016, and died less than eight weeks after her husband.

Farmhouse raffle

The property, spanning 1.59-acres, is located between Donegal town and Killybegs.
