Sligo Rovers lotto, Ireland call-up for Maguire

KILLIAN GALLAGHER in Cliffoney won the €200 Tesco voucher in Sligo Rovers weekly lotto draw last night, Monday.

The winning foursome was 2, 3, 7, 19 and there was no claim for an all-correct entry.

Hugh Quinn in Cliffoney sold the winning ticket, which was chasing a jackpot of €4,700.

Next week's lotto will now have a jackpot worth €5,000 for an outright winner with all four numbers correct.

The bonanza would be shared equally if there is more than one entry with a fully correct forecast.

Ireland Squad

Meanwhile, former Sligo Rovers striker Seanie Maguire has been included in the Ireland squad ahead of two vital matches.

The Republic plays Moldova on Friday night in the Aviva Stadium and face Wales in Cardiff on Monday night, October 9th

Ireland must win both games to have any chance of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup finals in Russia.

Maguire came to the Showgrounds five years ago on loan from London club West Ham United. 

He remains the top scorer in the current SSE Airtricity League, though having left Cork City for Preston North End nearly three months ago.

Finally, Sligo Rovers return to the Showgrounds on Saturday night next after a month's absence from the venue.

They face Dublin side Bohemian in a 'must win' fixture, kick off at 7.45pm, in the SSE Airtricity League.

The Bit o' Red are currently locked in the dreaded 'drop zone,' with two more teams facing relegation at the end of this month.
