Swinford GAA Club have launched their club draw for 2015.  The annual subscription remains at €150.  The club draw is again structured this year to ensure each subscriber is getting value for their money and you will be entitled to the following for your €150 investment in the club;
1.       Club Membership – €20
2.       Entry to Swinford home League games
3.       County Board ticket – €100, which has a prize fund of €90,000 and
4.       An entitlement to purchase an All-Ireland Senior Football final ticket should Mayo reach the final in 2015.
The officers of the club have decided to restrict the numbers in the draw this year to 130 people in order to limit the ticket demands placed on it should Mayo again reach the All Ireland final in 2015.

Please contact any club officer as soon as  possible if you are interested in purchasing a ticket as we expect to sell the allocation within a couple of weeks.
