The Cooley Kickhams club is launching a campaign to significantly increase the number of people playing our weekly lotto. We would like to encourage our friends, members and supporters, both from within Ireland and around the world, to sign up to play our lotto draw online.

Raising finance is vital to the continued success of the club and the weekly lotto draw is at the heart of our regular fundraising activities. Online sales are very important and welcome as they greatly reduce the workload of our club lotto sellers.

Playing club lotto online is simple - just register once to play, choose your numbers and the number of draws and pay securely via debit/credit card. Lotto players can sign up for automatic renewal, ensuring they never miss the chance to win. There is also a discount for playing online e.g. 6 weeks for the price of 5. If you require any assistance please contact Kevin Smyth, Lorraine Long, Anne McDonald, Veronica Traynor or Ann Marie O'Neill.

Thanks to all our members and friends for your continued support, and good luck in our lotto draws!

A statement to that effect was issued from Archbishop Eamon on Friday last; 'To assist in containing and preventing the spread of the Corvi 19 - Coronavirus Pandemic, all Masses are suspended until further notice.

Archbishop Eamon has dispensed all parishioners throughout the Archdiocese from the Sunday obligation to attend Mass. Mass will be broadcast via the parish webcam. All Churches will remain open as usual and people are encouraged to be united in prayer in these precarious times'.
