The chairman of a GAA club in the west of Ireland has hit the jackpot, by winning his own club’s lotto!

According to the Galway City Tribune, Chairman of CLG Bhearna, John Connolly won the club’s lotto jackpot of €10,700 in Monday night’s draw by matching four numbers (4, 14, 24 and 28).

He is the fourth jackpot winner of the Barna GAA lotto since November.

John Connolly, who is a Fianna Fáil councillor in Galway city, said that the win proved how anyone can win the Barna Lotto, adding that he had been buying tickets to support the club ever since the lotto was started in the early 1990s.

The club performed a skit on April Fool’s Day, where the chairman pulled out Lotto Officer Murt Conneely’s winning numbers. This week, the reverse happened with Mr Conneely pulling out the chairman’s four numbers but it was no joke, just coincidence!
