Co Armagh man wins holiday home worth over £50,000 in live GAA Facebook draw

The winner, informed of his luck after the live draw, responded simply: 'You're winding me up!'

A County Armagh man is celebrating after winning a holiday home worth more than £50,000 in a live draw.

The Win A Holiday Home in Ireland event was a fundraiser organised on behalf of Edendork GAC in Co Tyrone.

Darragh Cullen from Edendork presented the live draw with Brian McEniff as adjudicator.

The winning ticket drawn just after 8.30pm this evening belonged to Gilford man Richard Bloomer.

He received the news in a phone call from Darragh.

“You’re winding me up,” said Richard, when informed of his good fortune. “You’re joking.”

The winner will have a year’s pitch for his mobile at Rossnowlagh, Bundoran or Kesh included in his prize.

Over 5,000 tickets priced at £25 each were sold for the big draw!

Well done to Richard!
