Next week’s lotto Jackpot will be €4,100. As our lotto continues weekly we thank everyone for your continued support. If you have not yet joined our lotto or if your ticket has recently expired, please consider signing up again – it is our main fundraiser and contributes enormously to the day to day running of the club.
And the lotto can now be played in the following businesses in the town – The Hi-B, JKC, Centra, Rockies, Cleary’s Daybreak & Andys. So look out for our new lotto boxes in these places where you can buy your lotto tickets each week and they will be included in the next lotto draw.
Work continues on the new development with the laying out of the new field underway. A big few weeks now lie ahead as we reach the final stages of this phase of the project – drainage systems will be prepared and then levelling out with topsoil and sand. The costs continue to be a major part of this and so we are continuing to seek funding for this phase of the project. Our membership packages are still open and we thank everyone who has contributed to this to date. If you would like to avail of any of these packages, please contact any club officer or committee member for more information. Donations can also be made electronically – bank details available from Anne Kennedy & John Tooher. Please be sure to include your details if transferring money to this dedicated fundraising account.
