GAA club in Mayo to host auction with a truly impressive list of prizes on offer
Including rounds of golf and coaching sessions with Mayo GAA players, Neil Diamond tickets, All-Ireland Final tickets and much, much more.
Hundreds of items worth in excess of €30,000 will be up for grabs in an auction in aid of Breaffy GAA club, home of the O’Shea brothers and Mayo goalkeeper Rob Hennelly, this weekend.
Amongst a long and impressive list of items up for grabs at the auction this Saturday, June 10, will be rounds of golf with Aidan O’Shea, Rob Hennelly and Footballer of the Year Lee Keegan and coaching sessions with all four Breaffy players currently representing the green and red.
Both RTÉ and Sky Sports have also got involved and have each kindly provided a behind the scenes family package at a big Mayo match for fans to meet some of the best-known pundits in GAA on a big match day.
Those prizes also include match tickets for two adults and three children.
The RTÉ package is for this Sunday’s Mayo v Galway game in Salthill and bids will close at 9pm on Thursday, June 8. The package includes lunch in the Galway Bay Hotel before the game and a signed Mayo jersey and if you’re interested in putting in a bid, you can contact MJ on (087) 2585216.
If all that wasn’t enough, there are also four stand tickets for the All-Ireland Football Final (four individual prizes) and tickets for Manchester United and Arsenal games going under the hammer on the night.
For Neil Diamond fans, meanwhile, there's a concert package worth €450 for his concert at the 3 Arena on October 10, including two premium level tickets with one night’s bed and breakfast at the luxurious Clontarf Castle.
The auction, which had been due to take place last month but was postponed as a mark of respect after a tragic death in the club, gets underway this Saturday, June 10, at 6.30pm.
A full list of the items up for grabs is available to view here and for more, including information on how to bid over the phone for those who can’t make it on the night, check out the club’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
