Support for the weekly Lotto is the financial lifeline for the Club. We have seen major Developments take place in the last twelve months in terms of improving facilities. We plan to do further major improvements but of course having finance available is the key. In these hard times fundraising is not easy so the weekly Lotto remains crucial. As well as the €2 ticket an annual Ticket for €90 can be purchased. Just contact any Club Officer.
