The Castleisland RFC Split the Bucket draw was held for the first time in Currow in McCarthy’s Foodstore on Saturday evening last July 4th.
Gerard Brosnan from Knocknagoshel won €723 as his half of the contents of the bucket.
The next draw will be held in Martin Curtain’s shop at Upper Main Street, Castleisland at 7pm on the coming Saturday, July 11th.
How to Play Split the Bucket
The ‘How to Play’ instructions have changed a little since the post Covid-19 return of ‘The Bucket’ but the principle of winning half the pot remains the same and it’s making its way steadily, weekly back towards its ‘thousandaire days.’
Self Sealing Envelopes
Split the Bucket Envelopes – but now the self sealing kind – are available in almost all shops which are open now throughout this 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 or the club coloured, red and blue stand.
And, Castleisland RFC has added the convenience of playing online for those who are into it and you can do so by following the link here: https://app.superpayit.com/recurring-payment/initiate/iM16Pww/?fbclid=IwAR2o5cnHeUkab1aqHy1iSgQAnddRG8bd-Yp7VDStT1F-nZ6TR7nCPnMbgko
