Ardee St Marys and John Mitchels gave away a combined total of €15,800 to two lucky supporters on Tuesday evening – as both club’s lotto jackpots were won in weekly draws held at their clubhouses in Ardee and Ballybailie.
John McConnon, from Riverstown, managed to pick all four lucky numbers to scoop the Ardee St Marys jackpot of €9,900 while Ryan Finnegan won €5,900. The latter victory marks the second time in 2017 that the Mitchels jackpot has been won. In January, Niamh Tenanty took home the biggest jackpot prize of €10,000.
Anthony McArdle was the man who sold the lucky ticket to John with the player picking 9, 14, 15 and 17. The numbers called out in the Mitchels draw last night were 10, 12, 19 and 20. Ryan’s lotto envelope was sold by James Halpenny.
With a jackpot winner this time around, there were no lucky dip winners in either draw.
As well as envelopes being available from committee members and at various locations around the town, the Ardee St Marys lotto can now be played online by visiting www.stmarysgfc.com/lotto or the Ardee St Marys Facebook page.
The club’s fundraising lotto draws, run on a weekly basis, play a huge part in the fundraising efforts of the club. The club lotto is very generously sponsored by Carrick Road Service Station, Carrick Road, Ardee. Next Tuesday’s Marys jackpot will be €1,000.
John Mitchels lotto envelopes are available in Landy’s Irish Harp Bar, Ardee Post Office or from any committee member every week. The draw takes place every Tuesday night in the clubrooms. Next week’s jackpot will be €1,500.
