It’s getting a bit hard to keep up with all of the initiatives – most of them revolving around tickets for the decider – that are going on at the minute as final frenzy starts to build. Here’s today’s list.
First off there are two official Mayo GAA fundraisers I want to draw your attention to. The first is a Night at the Dogs fundraiser being held by Cáirde Mhaigheo in conjunction with the Mayo Association Galway at Galway Greyhound Stadium on Friday week (9th). Tickets for the fundraiser cost €20 each and, yes, there’ll be a chance to win All-Ireland tickets on the night. Full details on this event are here.
The second one is a Cáirde Mhaigheo London event that takes place at the Oxford Arms, 265 Camden High Street, NW1 7BU, on Sunday, 11th September, where throw-in is scheduled for 6.30pm. There’ll be a raffle at this event for two All-Ireland final tickets, a signed Mayo jersey and more.
There’s another opportunity to win tickets this coming Monday. The Mayo GAA Players Welfare Lotto (hosted by Smart Lotto) have ramped up their ticket giveaway for the coming week. There were two tickets won last Monday and next Monday, in addition to the €10,200 jackpot prize, there’ll be six tickets up for grabs. Play the Lotto here.
