Prize With A Difference: Man Raffles Off 40-Acre Kilkenny Farm

A clever way to sell...

This is a raffle with a difference. 

First prize? A 40-acre farm in Urlingford, Kilkenny. 

Alan Colclough, based in Borris-in-Ossory, Co Laois is raffling off a 40-acre farm with Farm Quiz. 

There are also ten runners-up prizes of €1,000 each. To enter the quiz all you need to do is buy a ticket for €250 and answer a simple question, pictured above. 

Colclough has also promised that €5,000 will be donated to the North Tipperary Hospice. 

The raffle will take place once the 2,000 tickets are sold. A few quick sums have revealed Colclough will make half a million euro if all the tickets are sold. With the donations to the hospice and the runners-up prizes out of the equation, he’ll end up with about €395,000 for the farm. 

Not bad at all. 

Colclough, you’re a smart guy.
