The Rebels' Bounty GAA fundraiser draw has again seen record numbers sign up this year.

€3 million raised for GAA clubs

A Cork County Board fundraiser has raised a total of €3 million for grassroot GAA clubs in Cork.

Following the huge success of the Rebels' Bounty fundraiser draw over the past three years, the sales period for this year's draw has again seen record numbers sign-up, with €3m raised in total.

An annual prize fund of €500,000 and a similar contribution to Cork County Board, including running costs, will result in just under €2 million being accrued by clubs.

This week saw the monthly draws for January, February and March take place with close to €100,000 in prizes being won, with the remainder of the €500,000 cash prize fund being distributed amongst the remaining monthly draws for 2024.

Cork GAA Chairperson, Pat Horgan, said: “We are thrilled that Rebels' Bounty has now firmly established itself as a consistent and sustainable fundraised for our clubs at grassroots level. It is a testament to all those that have travelled the highways and byways of Cork city and county over the last few months selling tickets and promoting the draw and to our all our members' continued commitment to their clubs.”

Cork GAA Secretary/CEO, Kevin O'Donovan, added: “We are thrilled to reach record numbers this year with record with sales of just under 30,000. We look forward to seeing our clubs reap the benefits of this investment in their facilities and coaching structures and we are grateful for the contribution to our own teams and activities also. Sincere thanks to the organising committee, in particular Trina, Cian, Terry, Patrick, Gary and Brian for their continued support of this project.”

Since 2021, a gross figure of €11.6m has been raised by Rebels' Bounty with close to €7.7 million having been harvested by clubs.
