Lotto

The Arva Club are starting their own Lotto and are looking for students to sell envelopes. Anyone interested should give their names to Club Secretary Siobhán O’ Hara.

There is great work ongoing within the club and children from U-8upwards are coached in the skills of the game. It is to be hoped that the community will support all this good work and join the GAA Lotto. The first draw will be held on Monday 6th June.
