LOTTO

As we move towards the winter months the crowd in the clubhouse gets a little smaller each week on Sunday afternoon. Despite this the “Get Into Golf Scramble” was taking place last Sunday (20th Oct) as we completed the Lotto draw – their members started to come into the clubhouse as we finished and it is a joy to see the pleasure they get from their golf and being involved in our club. Well done to Marcella and Ann who organised the group and also helped us with the Lotto draw!

The numbers drawn were 4, 8, 10 and 12. There was no winner of the Jackpot which increases to €6,200 next week.  There were four winners of the Match 3s – Bridget Walsh, Bernie Hayes, Mary Hennessy and Diarmuid O’Neill. Well done to each of them.

We also did our six monthly special draw this Sunday and the winners were:-

1st           Neil Power          –              A two-night stay and one dinner in any Flynn Group Hotel

2nd          Liz Walsh             –              A €90 ticket for next year’s Lotto

3rd           Mary Ryan          –              A bottle of Brandy

We have tickets available now for the last six months of the year at a cost of €45 for any of you who missed the annual tickets.

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