Let Lotto fund TV

Sir -- Regarding John Paul McCarthy (Sunday Independent, Dec 27, 2009) on RTE/TG4, historical and Irish language programmes broadcast during 2009.

I suggest that these programmes along with RTE performing groups be financed out of Winning Streak and Euro Millions profits, not out of the pockets of the working poor. The TV licence can be replaced by Lotto funding.
