The luxury Adria Sun Living S75 SL offers comfort and practicality and is suitable for families, couples or friends to travel and explore. Tickets cost just €25 and the draw which takes place this August is limited to 7995 entrants. All funds raised will be used to continue with the club’s ongoing development plans to enhance facilities at their grounds at PáircShíleáín in Templemore and in Graffin, Clonmore.
The club were delighted to welcome Tipperary Senior Hurling manager Liam Sheedy, Tipperary County Chairman Joe Kennedy and Offaly County Chairman and RTE analyst Michael Duignan to Páirc Shíleáin recently to launch this novel fundraiser. Also in attendance were the clubs past and present intercountry players Eamonn Corcoran, Paddy Cadell, Andrew Ormond and Kuba Bebenwho were delighted to support this fundraising effort.
Club Chairman Tadhg Sheedy stated, “The club is excited at the prospect of raising funds to develop additional facilities for our members and the community but also we look forward to handing over the keys to this campervan worth €75,000 to one lucky supporter of our draw”.
