Week commencing 26/03/12

Club Lotto
The next installment of the Ballyhegan Davitt’s Lotto is now upon us. Letters have been posted out informing the lotto patrons of their designated collector and their current numbers. The committee would like to urge our club members to continue to support our club lotto. It is the lifeblood of our club - providing the much needed finance to fund our teams both male & female at all ages & of course the club-house which is used for other community events. The club is always looking for new Lotto contributors, whilst maintaining our current core membership. If you are able to persuade a friend, or family member to join the lotto, please do! Thank you!

Download the lotto application form.
