Simpli Baked was delighted to be one of the main sponsors of the novel ‘Poos for the Blues’ campaign for Tullamore Ladies Gaelic Football Club.

Earlier this summer the local club held a highly original fundraising event, featuring two bullocks.

The event centred around the appropriately named ‘Pooper and Scooper’, and where they would poo in a field marked out with squares, which were sold as part of the fundraiser.

The field, as well and the two bullocks, were kindly loaned to the club for the day by Declan Bracken.

The club was very thankful to the Bracken family who facilitated this for the club and helped out with the organisation and running of the event over the weekend in June.

The owners of the winning squares were Gearoid Oman and Carrie Hanley.

Each were winners of the two main prizes worth €250, which were generously sponsored by Ciarán and Siobhán Stewart, Supermacs and Kieran Walsh, Simpli Baked. Gearoid Oman had bought the winning square for his parents Leo and Máirín, who have very generously donated their winnings back to the club.

The club were overwhelmed by the generosity of the sponsors of our two cash prizes, together with all of those who sponsored ‘splat’ prizes for the other lucky squares below.


The Tullamore club congratulated all their winners and thanked everyone who gave so generously to support the fundraiser:
