Stratford born Jessica and Jack pick the winning numbers and win €9,250 on Stratford Grangecon GAA Lotto!!
Congratulations to Jessica Bolger, born and raised in Stratford on Slaney and her young son Jack, both living in Dublin, but who continues to be a loyal supporter of the Stratford Grangecon GAA who had their numbers 5, 8, 18, 30 drawn on Tuesday 2nd May. These numbers proved to be a winning combination for Jessica and Jack – winning the lotto jackpot of €9,250. Jessica has been buying tickets from her brother Jason who is a player on the intermediate team for a number of years. Jessica was completely ‘disbelieving’ and thought Jason was playing an ‘April fool in May’ when Jason rang her to say that herself and Jack had scooped the Jackpot.
The presentation was made to Jessica and Jack by treasurer Colette Bollard in the club house in the company of her mum Kathleen on Wednesday night 10th May. Jessica told me that she has a holiday planned with some of the winnings.
Stratford Grangecon lotto started back at 6,000€ and as someone remarked ‘that amount would do me nicely if I was lucky enough to win’. People are delighted that the lotto started back at such a high amount. Keep doing your numbers as it could pay off for you as it did for Jessica and Jack. Tickets are on sale from usual sources and Assistant lotto Co-ordinator Annette Mangan asks that you continue to support the Stratford Grangecon GAA Club as this is the Club’s only source of income and the Club does need your support.
