The winner of the Split the Bucket draw held in The Halfway Bar in Ballymacelligott on Saturday, February 22nd was Joe O’Callaghan. Joe won €1,266.

Taxi driver, Joe is one of the lucky few to have won the draw twice as his envelope was pulled from the drum previously on September 22-2018 and he won €713 in the draw at The Fountain Bar on that occasion.

This Saturday night’s draw will be held in The Fountain Bar.

And if you’re not in already, you can still drop into The Fountain Bar and away from old Storm Jorge – and pronounce it what ever way you like and still play Split the Bucket up to 8:30pm or so tonight.

How to Play Split the Bucket

Buckets and envelopes are available in pubs and shops throughout Castleisland and neighbouring parishes.

You simply put your €2 in the envelope; seal it and sign it and add your telephone number and pop it in the bucket.

Half the Bucket Every Week

There’s a guaranteed half the bucket in prize-money each Saturday night for one lucky winner.

The buckets are collected from from shops before 6pm on Friday evenings while those in pubs are picked up later on Friday nights.

The bucket in the participating pub on any given Saturday night is active almost up to the time of the draw before its contents are checked and the envelopes entered into the drum.
