Lotto: The numbers drawn last week were: 2 – 12 – 16 – 21. No Winner. The Lucky Dips were: Ann Egan, Ann Kennedy, Joan Quinn, Shane Mannion and PJ Nevin. The Promoters prizes went to Billy Dagg, Mark Carroll and Geraldine O’Meara
Our jackpot reached a record high of €20,000 this week. The jackpot cannot go any higher so it will remain at €20,000 until it is won. If it rolls over, the new jackpot of €3000 will be rising by €150 per week.
