Lotto night started on a somber note with a minute’s silence to remember long time attendee of the Lotto, Bridget McCabe who died on the 5th of December. Bridget always introduced herself as one of the lotto committee and indeed she will be sorely missed. A great character gone too soon.

The numbers drawn on the 9th December were 11, 16, 18 and 30 and there were no winners of the 2,500.00 jackpot now tolled over to 2,600.00. The 5 lucky dippers each winning 20 were Sarah Duffy Traynor’s Shop, Sean McBrien Newtownbutler, Cormac McAdam Newtownbutler, M & M Heraghty Donegal and Brendan Newbliss. Well done to them!

The annual seasonal thank you party for the lotto crew took place on Monday 9th December which was generously sponsored by Packie McCarville The Creighton Hotel and James Connolly. Thank you to all sellers and tellers and most of all to everyone who buys our lotto tickets.
