There was no jackpot winner in this weeks Joe Coleman Roofing Carpentry Sponsored Lotto. Congratulations to Joe Cooley and Sean Finnerty on being this weeks match 3 winners. The numbers drawn were 6, 18, 26 and 28. Next weeks draw takes place in McGann's, jackpot €3,200. Supporters are encouraged to avail Direct Debit as a convenient means of playing the club's Lotto on a weekly basis, the direct debit mandate can be downloaded from the club website. Six and 12-monthly lotto subscriptions are now due and should be returned to any club officer asap.

We are hoping to run a similar private members draw every month that will guarantee 4 winners each month, 1st prize €700 and 3 prizes of €100 each. It will have a limited number of participants so your chances of winning in each monthly draw will be set. The cost to participate in this monthly draw is €20 per month by standing order from your bank account. The previous draw proved very popular due to the limited no of entries and the guarantee of 4 winning entries each monthly draw, so over a year there would be 48 winners. The standing order mandate can be downloaded from the club website from this weekend on or by contacting any club officer.
