The first draw takes place on Thursday 8th April with a Jackpot of €1,000 that It will increase each week to a maximum of €5,000. There will be a lucky dip winner each week. There is still plenty of time to join for the first draw.
The Lotto we hope will be a steady income to St. Michael’s Parish in Tipperary.
