Club Limerick Draw 2021
Sincere thank you to our members and promoters for your continued support, which has led to a fantastic uptake for the 2021 Club Limerick Draw. We have had wonderful success over the years and we hope to continue that good fortune over the months ahead. Best of luck to everyone in the 1st draw, which will be held on March 27th, hopefully one of our members will win the top prize of €10,000, or maybe even the Exclusive Star Prize of an iPad!
CON & ANNIE KIBRY – Trophy Parade
Polish off your silverware for the Virtual Trophy Parade!
Limerick is truly the Sporting Capital of Ireland, great teams & sportspeople (& canines!), great facilities and even better fans. Over the last few years, we’ve been lucky enough to see plenty of silverware in the city and county and now we want to see yours!
We want to see your photos & hear your stories, telling tales of wins from both GAA and greyhound racing. It doesn’t matter if it’s an Under 6’s Player of the Week, a schools team competition or a county championship – tell us about it.
The winning story (as reviewed by our panel) will win a voucher to use at Limerick Greyhound Stadium when it re-opens for public admission. To enter share a picture, it can be a throwback or one you’ve taken today, and a little story about it and what it means to you.
HOW TO ENTER THE VIRTUAL TROPHY PARADE
Don’t forget to tell us your name and if you’re part of one of our competing Limerick GAA clubs.
Entries must be received by Sunday 28th March. Winners will be contacted via means of entry (i.e. social media or email). Please note that all entries may be used by Limerick Greyhound Stadium and Greyhound Racing Ireland on their website and social media channels for promotion of the competition.
WHAT CAN YOU WIN?
Our winning trophy story will receive a €200 voucher for Limerick Greyhound Stadium.
Please note that Limerick Greyhound Stadium is currently racing behind closed doors in line with Government Guidelines. We do not currently have a date for re-opening as this is dependent on Government Policy but the voucher will be issued to the winner once we re-open.
