LOTTO RESULTS

Golfers playing in the Senior Scratch Cup were arriving into the clubhouse having finished their two rounds of golf as we did the draw for the weekly Lotto (16thJune). They were wet and cheerful after playing through rain and wind – well done to them. 

 The numbers drawn in the weekly Lotto were 1, 12, 25 and 27. There was no winner of the Jackpot which increases to €4,400 next week! We had one Match 3 winner this week  – Tony Dalton who wins €100 – congratulations to Tony – he was a welcome visitor to our club this week.

 The fundraising committee have decided that the main day for the weekly draw going forward will be Saturday – except where there is a major event on the Sunday.

 The draw next week will take place on Sunday afternoon about 4:30pm. Come along and support us – all are welcome.
