LOTTO

The Lotto Draw last week was completed on Saturday 30th Nov.  Golfers coming into the clubhouse were reporting that conditions are improving and that the course is drying out very quickly. Great news – let’s hope we get a long dry spell!

The numbers drawn were 4, 13, 25 and 27. There was no winner of the Jackpot which increases to €6,800 next week.  There were three winners of the Match 3s – Ted Dipple, Maeve Morrissey and Liz Kelly – they each win €66 as we had no winner last week.

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