Sligo Rovers €6,800 lotto jackpot winner

OLIVIA GILROY at the Pension Office won €6,800 in Sligo Rovers weekly lotto draw last night, Monday.

The winning foursome drawn was 8, 15, 17, 23 and the winner had all four correct.

The weekly €200 Tesco voucher last night was Anne O'Shea of Caltragh Road.

Next week's jackpot will revert to €2,000 for an all-correct forecast of four numbers.

The 'pot' will be equally divided if there is more than all-correct entry.

Fallen Back

On the pitch, Sligo Rovers have now fallen back to 11th of twelve clubs after a weekend scoreless draw in Limerick.

RTÉ's ''Soccer Republic'' Dave Barry attended the game but last night rated it as poor quality in his TV analysis.

Sligo Rovers now face two home games in the next fortnight which will possibly decide the club's fortunes for this season.

First up on Saturday night will be reigning champions Dundalk. Kick off 7.45pm.

St Patrick's Athletic, fellow strugglers in the relegation stakes, have been creeping clear of the dreaded drop zone in recent results.
