GAA fans from all over the country vied to take the champions title in each province and win coveted VIP tickets to the All-Ireland Football Final in Croke Park.
In Leinster, Max Ramsbottom from county Laois was the clear champion racking up an impressive total of 202 points.
In Connacht, Cathal Riddell from county Galway was the winner on 186 points.
In Ulster, Rory Waterman from county Down was the champion finishing with 186 points.
In Munster, Shane Browne from county Cork came out on top with 196 points.
Commenting on his win, Leinster champion Max said:
“I’m a huge GAA fan and really enjoyed predicting the scores each week. By taking part in eircom’s Win, Lose or Draw game I had added interest each week in every match. I’m delighted to win the Leinster league and am really looking forward to going to the All-Ireland Final”.
eircom’s GAA ambassadors also took part in the Win, Lose or Draw action with Kerry’s Colm Cooper coming out on top with 176 points, Donie Shine was runner up with 168 points and Michael Murphy was a close third with 166. Michael’s score is even more impressive as he started predicting scores a few weeks behind the other ambassadors.
All three appeared on the provincial leader boards, however Ciarán Whelan, Mickey Harte and Johnny Doyle were less successful as they did not appear in the top ten in the league in their province - some of our GAA ambassadors need tips from our Win, Lose or Draw winners!
Kevin White, managing director, consumer, eircom said:
“Congratulations to our four provincial winners. They showed true dedication playing our Win, Lose or Draw game each week. Max is a very worthy winner and clearly has a huge understanding of the game finishing with 202 points. It has been another exciting GAA All-Ireland Football Championship again this year and I look forward to a thrilling final in Croke Park.”
Even though the VIP tickets are gone, fans can still play for a trip to New York in our weekly quiz or tickets to the International Rules test at Croke Park later in the year on the innovative eircom FanPic.
