The other winners were John Briney (£1,000), Cathal Brown (£500), with Clionagh O’Neill, Rory Conroy and Vera McGeown all winning £100 each. Thank you to everyone who took part in this fundraiser. As always, we received terrific support from our members and local community, but we also got brilliant backing from our neighbouring clubs and wider circle of friends across other counties. We want you to know that all of your support, financial and general, is important and very much appreciated.
Huge thanks also go to all the hard-working ticket sellers who gave up so much of their time to help ensure this draw was a success – thank you all.
