Win a field in the Donegal Gaeltacht for £1

A FIELD is to be raffled on St Patrick’s Day to provide funds to build hurling and camogie facilities in Derry.
Na Magha CLG have acquired the two-acre field outside Doochary and  is selling tickets to win the ‘pound field’.
Club officials are asking gaels to support the only surviving hurling club in Derry city by buying tickets which, they hope, will allow them to finance a new Hurling/Camogie pitch.
Hurling and Camogie have suffered a decline in the city of Derry, particularly during the past 60 years.
“We are working hard to reverse this trend and get more young people playing the great national games of Hurling and Camogie in our City,” he said.
Na Magha CLG have acquired three acres of land presently covered in whins and scrub in Ballyarnett county park on which they hope to build a new Hurling/Camogie pitch. They have also acquired the field in West Donegal.
“We want people to buy a ticket to win this historic piece of heaven in the Donegal Gaeltacht adjacent to Glenveagh National Park in Derrynanaspol (Doire Na nAspal), which means the apostle’s oak grove.
According to the brochure, the field is approximately two acres of green, top quality land surrounded by the abhainn bhuí River on two sides, a tributary of the Gweebarra, a world-famous fishing river that flows out to the Atlantic.  Sixty tickets can be purchased for £50, 40 tickets for £40 and 20 tickets for £20.
