**Important Notice** – Dogs in Pearse Park
Unfortunately we have to reinforce the action of “No Dogs Allowed” within the grounds of Pearse Park. This is due to the health and safety of our players and members as we have received complaints of high levels dog fouling on our pitches & walking track. If you are on our grounds with a dog (on/off a lead please do not be offended when you are asked to leave).

Connect 4 Lotto
This week’s connect 4 lotto numbers were 3 – 9 – 12 – 7 with no jackpot winner.  Our 5 lucky dip winners winning £20 were: Finbarr McConnell, Sarah Rafferty, Tracey McCall, Rory Kelly & Peter O’Neill.  Our jackpot now stands at £3650.  Our next lotto draw takes place on Easter Tuesday 23rd April in the committee room at 9pm.

Do you support our club lotto? Have you a lotto seller that calls at your house to sell lotto?  Would you like a lotto seller to call at your house to sell lotto so that you can support the club that supports you and your children or grandchildren?

Would you consider accepting a club lotto book and selling 3-5 lotto tickets each week and having a committee member call weekly to collect your tickets?

The club requires more lotto sellers so if you would be interested in helping the club out with this please contact any committee member.
