Launch of our revamped yearly lotto tickets
The lotto which has been run by Castleconnor GAA club for the last 20 years, had only one change in that time but the club has decided to make a number of changes for 2017. This is the time of year when our yearly lotto are up for renewal and the club were excited and anxious to get the message out to all of the exciting changes that are in store.
At the recent club meeting lotto coordinator Geraldine McDonnell explained some of the changes to members, with the draw now taking place weekly. Subscribers will have the ability to pay for their ticket by cash, cheque, standing order or online(http://castleconnor.

Club treasurer Darren Ruane explained that the club lotto is the largest source of income towards the daily running of the club.
Gerry Healy, club chairperson stated that weekly ticket prices would remain the same but added to get it up and running there would be a draw for early yearly subscribers before this years first draw on June 3rd for €300 and that the lotto jackpot will be €10000.
