The lotto is now well on the way to €10,000, which would be a nice little nest egg to come by. Be sure to have your chance to win by filling in an envelope in all the usual outlets. Annual lotto subscriptions are available by contacting John Flanagan or Frances Kennedy.
There was no winner of the July 3rd lotto draw. Numbers drawn were: 9, 10, 19 and 28. Lucky dip winners were James & Sarah McCabe, Kevin Reilly, Dermot & Fiona Murphy and Ciaran Doyle.
Finally, commiserations to the county seniors who were defeated by Tyrone in the All Ireland qualifiers. They certainly gave a great account of themselves.
