Amid the excitement on Sunday afternoon we did the Lotto draw.  The numbers drawn on 28th July were 1, 8, 20 and 25. There was no winner of the Jackpot which increases to €5,000 next week.  We had one Match 3 winner this week – Frances Moynihan – she wins €100 – congratulations to Frances.

The drainage project funded by the Lotto is due for completion soon. Again, thanks to all of you for the support and understanding you are showing for the disruption caused by the project.
