Split the Bucket Winning Family Connections Continue with Brianna

Pre Christmas Split the Bucket Draw winner Cheala Murphy receiving her €920 winner’s cheque from Castleisland RFC PRO Brian O’Sullivan at the draw at Centra Castleisland.

The Christmas Eve Split the Bucket Draw was held at Centra where last week’s winner Cheala Murphy collected her winnings of  €920.

As draw hosts, Kelly Ann from Centra picked out the most recent winner, Brianna Nolan. Brianna’s cheque for €950 awaits her at Saturday’s draw.

The long standing family connections between Split the Bucket winners continues with Brianna’s lucky strike.

Brianna is previous winner Zoe Nolan’s daughter and her granny and great granny and grand uncles have all won the draw over the past couple of years.

In this case, Brianna’s winning entry was popped in the bucket for her by grand-uncle John Nolan while in for a haircut at Pat’s barbers. And that’s a fourth generation of the family to reap the rewards of solid club draw support.

The next draw is on the coming Saturday, January 7th. and the venue is to be confirmed. Happy New Year to all draw supporters.
