There was excitement in Co Mayo on Saturday more than just who might win the National Lottery’s €19million jackpot.

The look on Aine Mayock’s face was priceless when the hardworking Moy Davitts GAA member conducted her club’s weekly 50/50 Draw on Saturday morning and only went and drew her own granddaughter’s ticket from the drum!

Young Sophie Mayock picked up a cool first prize of €340 as a result of her gran’s lucky dip.

Watch to the end of the video to see the look on the face of a quite clearly stunned Aine.

There was a remarkable similarity between the Moy Davitts draw and that of St Eunan’s GAA Club’s in Letterkenny just before Christmas when club chairman John Haran oversaw the club’s fundraising draw and watched as his young son Ollie pulled out his dad’s own ticket. The footage went viral on social media. The prize was tickets to one of Garth Brooks’ five sold-out shows in Croke Park this year.

The chairman quickly gave up the tickets and promptly said the raffle would be drawn again to avoid any controversy. But his son could be heard declaring: “Dad, if we won, we won”.

And Ollie was right of course.

Here’s hoping Sophie enjoys her good fortune and who knows, perhaps she’ll even treat her grandmother to something nice!

Moy Davitts, meanwhile, are currently involved in a GAA initiative to become a healthier club and will be hosting a number of walks and runs over the coming weeks and are encouraging all members to participate towards promoting a healthier lifestyle.
