An Crannchur – The Raffle

It’s that time again, the time to show your love for family, friends and colleagues by giving them the opportunity to buy a chance to get to Ireland for $5. Can you believe being able to get to Ireland for $5? You can, of course, buy a book of six tickets for $25 and up your odds. As most of you know the raffle is the Friends main fundraiser. Held every two years, the proceeds enable us support the dance, music, language and literature programs on and off campus. The first prize is a trip for two to Ireland with ten-day car rental and $1500 spending money; the second prize is a $1000 gas voucher; and third get $500 gift voucher. The success of the raffle is completely dependent on your support. If each of you took responsibility for selling 2 books of tickets, we would be well on our way to achieving our goal of raising $30,000. So, please help us spread the joy to family and friends. If you feel you can sell a few books, please contact Traolach at toriordain@hotmail.com or the Friends at friendsofirishstudies@gmail.com.
