On Friday May 17th, Taxback.com launched a GAA Competition via our Facebook page giving our customers and fans the chance to win some amazing prizes for themselves and their GAA Clubs. The idea was simple; all you had to do was upload up to three pictures which you felt best represented GAA in Australia. Then you just had to get your friends and family to vote for you and the photo with the most votes won. The prize was 2 platinum level tickets to the Lions vs Wallabies test in Brisbane on June 22nd plus return flights and 2 nights accommodation in The Metro Tower Mill Hotel. People submitted some brilliant photos of GAA in Australia and over three hundred people voted for their favourite. Things were tight for a while, with just a few votes between the top two during the last week, but the competition ended on June 10th and now the winner has been announced! The winner was Peader Byrne from the Bondi Gaels, Sydney, GAA club. The photo he submitted of his team winning a GAA match at the beach got well over 100 votes and won him the amazing prize! When we contacted him to tell him he’d won, he said ‘I’m over the moon! I’m really looking forward to the trip and the game. Thank you so much Taxback.com!
Not only that, but as a second tier prize, all the other photo’s were judged by an independent GAA representative who chose their favourites from each territory in Australia. The people who submitted these photos won their respective GAA clubs a sports event in a venue of their choice where they can chill out together with food and drinks provided by Taxback.com. The winners of the second tier prize were; Gregg Cooper from the Northern Territory representing the Darwin Shamrocks Mary Corbett from Queensland representing the Brisbane Shamrocks Barry Donnellan from the Western Territory representing St. Finbarrs GAA Geraldine Fennelly from New South Wales representing Central Coast GAA We would like to extend huge congratulations to all the winners and their clubs. We can’t wait to see all the pictures from all the events and share them with you! If you’d like to be the first to know about future competitions, visit our Facebook page and hit ‘like’.
