Lotto Winner

Emyvale Lotto made one man very happy by presenting him with the Lotto Jackpot of €3,300.00, whose random numbers came out of the drum. He is Desi Friel from Strabane, County Tyrone, and he collected his winnings at Tully on Tuesday evening, June 19th 2018. Desi had attended an inter-county Ladies game in Emyvale the previous week and as he says -'I'm a member of Strabane Club and I always like to support other clubs when I go to their grounds. He saw the Lotto box when he entered Tully and just did it and forgot about it. Then the phone-call came from Eugene O'Brien and he thought - great I had three numbers, but couldn't believe it when Eugene told me I had won the Jackpot of €3,300. Brilliant, Brilliant'. It was Kathleen O'Brien who sold the winning numbers and Desi thanked her and the club. We wish him every enjoyment in spending the money and thank him for his support for Emyvale GFC.
