Limerick’s Live 95FM have given away €10,000 to one lucky listener based on the poc of a sliotar.
Listeners to Limerick’s Live 95FM were be invited to text the word ‘WIN’ followed by their name and where they’re from to the stations during various programmes. When a listener’s name was called out, they had 95 minutes to contact the station to win a place at the Grand Final.
Thousands of listeners entered and one hundred qualifiers were chosen – fifty Live 95FM listeners and fifty sports fans nominated through their GAA Clubs – all of whom made their way to Limerick’s Gaelic Grounds on Saturday May 9th for the Grand Final.
At the Gaelic Grounds event, there was a grid on the pitch with 100 separate spaces/grids numbered one to one hundred. Each qualifier picked a number from one to one hundred from a draw drum, and the county’s Senior Hurling Manager, T.J. Ryan then performed the “poc”, hitting a sliotar at the grid just after 12-noon.
The sliotar landed on the space of Brian Cahill from Adare who was duly awarded the €10,000 prize by Limerick’s Live 95FM.
