A cottage in Co. Mayo is being raffled in order to raise money for healthcare workers who have “brought Ireland through the COVID-19 pandemic”.
The owners of the property were both struck down by the coronavirus and feel extremely lucky to have survived.
They stated that the frontline workers showed “enormous courage” in outing themselves in danger every day.
They now want to acknowledge them by raising money as a gesture of their gratitude. “They can never be thanked enough for supporting the people and the country in its time of need.”
Nestled underneath the Ox Mountains in Attymachugh, Foxford, the cottage is equipped with internet, satellite TV, mains water and electricity. It also has basic furniture, an electric stove, fridge and complete range of cooking implements and tableware.
Set on 07. acres, there are several outhouses, which are newly roofed, and the property has two paved patio areas, front and rear. There is also a communal bogland should the winners decide to cut their own turf.
Tickets can be purchased for €10 and the draw will take place on Friday, August 28th.
Anyone of any nationality can enter but will need to register with Revenue to become the registered owner of the property.
The winner will receive an email to inform them they have won and the necessary documentation regarding the transfer of the property will be sent to them.
The owners have stated that the funds will be distributed according to the amount raised. The money will be administered and managed by an accountant, Mr. John O’Sullivan in Dublin, and he will decide how the funds are distributed.
