The Lattin/Cullen GAA lotto draw was held in Pat Ryan’s pub, Lattin, last Monday. Jackpot: E3,900. Jackpot numbers: 8, 17, 19, 24. No winner. Lucky dip winners: Joanne Ryan, Clerkstown, Lattin; Owen Shane Hannon, Fethard; Francis Breen, Roseboro, Kay Dunne, Lattin. Thanks to Pat and Alice for hosing the night. The next draw will be held in Gerry Vaughans pub and the jackpot rolls over to E4,100. A big thank you to all who have supported the draw to date. The lotto is in its infancy and is a vital means of meeting loan repayments and keeping up to date with the day-to-day running of the club. The support for the lotto has been fantastic so far and without the support of our parish, our club would not function. Many thanks to all for such a great show of community spirit.
