A national school in Laois is giving people an opportunity to win an incredible prize as they hold a Monster Draw to raise money for a new carpark. 

Although the third prize of dinner for two in Ballyfin House would be spectacular, and the second prize of three trailer loads of seasoned fire wood is practical, the first prize is mindblowing.

Paddock National School's first prize is two match tickets, flights and two night's accommodation to see Cristiano Ronaldo and his Real Madrid teammates take on their arch city rivals Atlético in Madrid in April. 

The game takes place in Real's famous Santiago Bernabeu stadium and pits Zinedine Zidane's Los Blancos against Diego Simeone's Los Rojiblancos.

The Monster Draw is taking place in Tom's Bar, Mountrath, Co. Laois on Friday, February 9 at 9pm and tickets, costing just €10 will be available on the night.

Don't miss this chance to make the dreams come true of that football fanatic in your life...
