I have run this store here for more than 16 years and it’s the biggest winner we’ve sold by a long shot so we’re delighted with that. The Belgrove is a traditional-style community newsagents – one of the last of its kind. We have a strong local custom here which is predominantly from the local Clontarf community – sure I grew up nearby in Clontarf myself. I really do hope the winner is one of our regular customers and we’ve been spreading the word this morning for everyone to check their tickets so there is a great buzz about Clontarf today. It’s a great day for the town.”
