There was wonderful excitement in the Midleton GAA Club pavilion on Friday night last and subsequently all over the town and beyond as news emerged that our Lotto Jackpot of €20,000 or a VW Golf had been won and it was won by one of our most loyal bingo and lotto supporters, Liz Warne, who was in the hall at the bingo on the night when the winner was called out. 

The outpouring of congratulations in the hall and on social media (check out the brilliant video of the moment Liz heard the news on our social media channels) shows just how popular a winner Liz is. Thanks Liz for your great support over many years and enjoy every cent of your winnings. Liz and her family will be most welcome on Friday night when she collects her check at half-time in the bingo.
