A STYLISH new house in Killarney, valued at €350,000, has been won by a lucky Cork woman.
Marion Foley, from Blarney, hit the jackpot when her name was plucked from the draw drum in a win a house raffle organised to raise funds for Ardfert Community Council.
The 1442 sq. ft. semi-detached house is located in a new development called Sailin Rea which is located just off Park Road in Killarney and just minutes from Killarney town centre.
Finished to a very high standard, the ground floor includes an entrance hallway, a sitting room and a combined kitchen, dining and living room as well as a guest toilet, while the upstairs master bedroom is ensuite.
Although there were some technical hitches with the planned live-streaming of the draw, the organising committee later revealed the list of winners and ticket number 5,161 was deemed the winner alright.
The second prize of €5,000 in cash stayed in Kerry and it went to Angela Begley, Castleisland while third prize of a €2,000 hotel voucher was won by Richard Samakubar, Killarney.
Other prizewinners were €1,000 hotel vouchers: Annette Nolan, Kilflynn, AM Sugrue, Ballyseedy, Tralee and Darragh Woulfe, Abbeyfeale; €500 hotel vouchers: Bertrand Murphy, Knocknagoshel; Timothy Doyle, Roscommon, Michelle Walsh, Sneem and Eoghan Darmody, Killarney.
74 per cent of the tickets were bought in Kerry and the proceeds will go towards the development of a state-of-the-art recreational hub in Ardfert which will incorporate an all-weather playing pitch, a grass GAA field and a public amenity walkway.
