The first draw for the 2013/14 Tipperary Clubs Draw took place on Friday night last at the Templemore Arms hotel.

This year a big effort was made to sell draw membership abroad and the first prize of a Skoda Octavia or €15,000 went to New York with St. Raymonds Gaelic Football Club winning.

The ticket was sold by former Roscrea and Tipperary hurler, Brendan Maher. Second prize of a Skoda Fabia or €10,000 went to Deirdre Lowney of St. Patrick Terrace, Nenagh with this ticket sold by the Nenagh Eire Og club. Over 20 other prizes of €500 and €200 were also won on the night.

New draw sponsors, Acorn Life, are sponsoring a monthly prize of a weekend for 2 in Dromoland Castle for draw members who enter a specially confined draw – entry details are with the draw brochures. The first winner was Maria Hayes.
