  167. Mr. Murphy asked the Minister for Finance the amount of revenue taken in sales by the national lottery on lotto and lottery tickets in County Tipperary for the years 2003 to 2005. [9752/05]

  Mr. Cowen:It is not the policy of An Post National Lottery Company to release sales figures for its games at a county or other disaggregated level. However, for most general purposes, it is possible to statistically estimate sales in any county by reference to proportional population in that county. Total national lottery ticket sales in 2003 were €559 million, and in 2004 were €578 million.
