BALLYCUMBER’S Paschal Guinan hit the jackpot in the Offaly GAA lotto draw recently as he matched all four numbers and netted €20,000 for him-self.

Paschal’s winning numbers were 3, 16, 20 and 25, and he was presented with his prize money by Offaly GAA Assistant Treasurer Andy Gallagher in the Club Faithful Supporters Zone at O’Connor Park on the day that Carroll’s Ham renewed their sponsorship of Offaly GAA for a record 23rd consecutive season.

Meanwhile, the €5,200 jackpot survived last Tuesday’s Offaly GAA lotto draw where the numbers drawn were 3, 5, 14 and 24.

There were no jackpot or match three winners, so four Lucky Dip winners who receive €50 each were drawn and they were - Joe Cantwell, Cloghan; Yvonne Martin, Kilcormac; Eddie Kaye, Cloneygowan and Jim Kelly, Ballycumber.

Offaly GAA Chairperson Padraig Boland urged people to play the county lotto. “We hope that everybody associated with and interested in the development of Offaly GAA Teams will help us to promote this important fundraising initiative by contacting Offaly people from all over the world, asking them to visit the Offaly GAA website and to offer their support by entering our Lotto Draw online.”

Mr Boland concluded, “Offaly County Board wish to thank all Lotto players for their support of Offaly GAA teams and well done to Paschal on his win.”

The next draw for a jackpot of €5,400 will be held on Tuesday April 9th. You can play online at
