The seventh Club Lotto draw of the year took place at the clubhouse on Monday the 9th of March. The numbers drawn on the night were 2, 3, 17 and 20. There was no jackpot winner; therefore next week’s jackpot increases to €2500. Five lucky players matched two of the numbers drawn. They were: Maura McDaid (Edenmore), Joe Lynch (Carrickmore), C. Kennedy (The Bowling Green Bar, Strabane), Phil Ferry (Porthall), and Isabella Connolly (Lifford). Each received €20.

STARS IN THEIR EYES FUNDRAISER
Our ‘Stars in Their Eyes’ Fundraiser is now less than 2 weeks away, with the event taking place in Bannigans Bar, Main Street, Lifford on Saturday the 21st of March at 9PM. On the night we have country legends Garth Brooks and Kenny Rogers performing, as well as Neil Diamond and modern day chart toppers CeeLo Green, Megan Trainor and Katy Perry. We also have ol’ blue eyes himself, Frank Sinatra, as well as Alannah Myles of ‘Black Velvet’ fame, with one or two additional acts still to be confirmed before the big night. While we can promises nothing as regards the quality of the singing on the night, we can guarantee a great night’s fun and some brilliant entertainment.
Tickets for the event are now on sale now at a cost of €5. Tickets can be obtained from Club Members John McDermott (0872106832), Megan McNulty (0863943127), Christine Marley (0868964163), Orla McGhee (0867300218) and Caroline McBride.

In next week’s Club Notes, we will be revealing the true identities of those brave souls taking to the stage on the night.
We hope to see you all there.
The Club would to like to extend its sympathies to the family and friends of Bobby Kelly (Drumbuoy) on their recent bereavement – ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
