There’s been international demand for a chance to win a house in one of Cork city most sought after addresses.

Tickets for the #WinAGaff have been selling in Canada and Australia for the home worth just shy of €300,000.

With tickets costing €100, the winner will get to own their own home, which is a brand new 75 square metre, two bedroom apartment in the highly sought after suburb of Ballintemple in Cork city.

The property will be presented to the winner in pristine quality, complete with contemporary built-in kitchen, appliances, wardrobes, double-glazed Alu-clad windows and a landscaped patio. More details about the property can be viewed at The competition is part of a fundraising initiative on behalf of Cork City FC, Douglas GAA club and Kinsale AFC, with funds being distributed to develop facilities at each for all age levels.

Aidan O’Connor, Chairman of Douglas FC said: “This is a life changing prize and I would encourage people to get their ticket while they can. The gaff is nearly finished and it is getting really exciting now. We will be using the proceeds to fundraise for our clubs. This is certainly a draw with a wow factor and it will change someone’s life.”

Douglas GAA plans to use the proceeds to develop floodlighting and improvements to its pitch, while Cork City will invest in its youth academy and community projects. Kinsale AFC says the money raised will improve its ageing facilities, after the numbers involved in the club trebled in just five years.

A ticket for the draw costs €100, but a maximum of just 9,000 tickets are being put up for sale.

The lucky winner of the apartment will be drawn in a grand prize raffle in October.
