Other prizes include VIP All-Ireland football final tickets and two Six Nations tickets.
The club hopes the raffle will raise the €50,000 it needs to pay off debts it owes for a new complex and pitches.
Seamus McEnaney, chair of the club, said the double grave was "priceless because you can't buy a plot here in the village before someone passes away".
He told the Independent: "Inevitably, death will come to us all, so this is a really priceless prize.
"We are from a small, rural club in Co Monaghan, we built a state-of-the-art complex and we have fundraised in so many ways and this is our last bit of debt to clear," Mr McEnaney said.
"At a club meeting we talked about getting something different in the raffle for the club and my sister Bernadette came up with the idea. We thought about it and realised that this is indeed unique to our community, we have a choice of two chapels and two cemeteries and you can't pick your plot in either cemetery, until after someone dies."
