LOTTO: No lotto winner for the jackpots. The numbers drawn were 7, 24, 26, and 27.

There was one 3 number winner and that was Martin Fitzmaurice.The numbers drawn for the second jackpot of 3450 euro were 6, 7, 18 and 23. There was no winner of the jackpot. There were four 3 number winners, Eiryn Wallace, Lily O'Connor, Lisa Fulham and Niamh Kiernan. There will be changes in place for the draw of 24th January 2011.The RCD have decided to remove the option of the 3 number winners and replace it with three envelopes to be drawn out of the drum on each draw and for the ticket holders to win 30 euro each. This means that you are in with a chance to win 30 euro even if you don't have any of the winning numbers drawn. The RCD feels this is a fairer option and many other local lotto committees follow this template.

The next draw is 24th January 2011 and this draw will have two jackpots one for 15,000 euro and the next for 3,600 euro. The results of that draw
