During the recent AIL home win over Cork Constitution, Blackrock launched their new online lotto initiative…

www.locallotto.ie is a Galway based company which enables clubs to raise money by playing their club lotto online.

Local lotteries and raffles are vital ways of funding local sports clubs – especially at a time when state funding is under threat.

The system enables clubs to hold and manage their lotteries online, and not just in the local pub. It allows the lottery organisers to cut down on the administration required, but also allows people who wouldn’t normally have the time, or be in the locality, to support their favourite teams via the internet.

“This new online lotto will be a big help in the fundraising efforts of Blackrock College RFC” said Declan Gardiner.

“We encourage all of our ex members/Students and community to play the Blackrock College RFC fundraising lotto. We also hope that we can all work together to promote this lotto and help get back in touch with people from Blackrock Collage, Dublin who may now be working and living all over the world”.

During half time Conall Ó Céidigh (Locallotto.ie) joined former Leinster, Ireland and Lions star Fergus Slattery to draw the first set of numbers.

Unfortunately there were no winners on the day but don’t forget there is always next week with a jackpot of €;550. To play your ticket log onto www.blackrockcollegerfc.com
