Ballinrobe man offers ‘golden ticket’ in Letterkenny

Ballinrobe man Enda Heneghan is giving Donegal fans the chance to get their hands on a much coveted All-Ireland ticket. Running Aunty Nellie’s traditional Irish sweet shop on Letterkenny’s Main Street, Enda has decided to run a novel Willie Wonka-type giveaway.
The Ballinrobe native has placed one All Ireland ticket in a €2 lucky bag for one lucky customer to discover.
Speaking about the giveaway Enda said ‘It’s a bit of craic’.
“We managed to get our hands on one ticket because they are like gold dust and I thought it would be good to give it away in a competition.”
Describing it as ‘the Irish equivalent of a golden ticket’, Enda has ensured that everyone gets a chance by not revealing how many lucky bags are available.
“We don’t want someone walking into the shop and buying the whole lot just so they can get the ticket. That would be unfair,” said Mr Heneghan.
Although the good spirited Mayo man realises he is giving away a ticket to ‘the enemy’, the business owner said he would be delighted for whoever picks up he aptly named ‘lucky bag’.
“I live and work in Letterkenny these days, so I’ll be delighted for whoever wins it.”
With the competition ending this Friday and the scramble for tickets ongoing, Mr Heneghan might see some familiar Mayo faces visiting Aunty Nellie’s hoping to pick up the ‘golden ticket’.
