Cork grandmother vows to share €147,833 EuroMillions prize pot with entire family

National Lottery reminds players in Cork to check their tickets as €50,000 EuroMillions prize remains unclaimed

It was a Monday to remember for one lucky grandmother from Cork who claimed a EuroMillions prize worth €147,833 at National Lottery HQ today. The delighted Cork woman was joined by her family as she travelled to Dublin to collect the prize which she won on Tuesday 14th February, having bought her winning ticket at Dunnes Stores in Bishopstown in Co. Cork.

There were audible gasps of disbelief from her family members when the caring Cork granny vowed to share her entire winnings amongst her children and grandchildren. “Of course, we’re all going to share it! I’m blessed to have a wonderful family and I want each of my children and grandchildren to have an equal share of the prize. Not one of them will want to take a penny from me but I am going to insist that they take it – whether they want to enjoy spending it now or if they want to put it aside for their futures. It’s always been a dream for me to be able to give something like this to my family!,” she said.

“I’ve enjoyed the excitement that the win has brought into the family home over the past week or so. We’ll enjoy the celebrations and take a week or two before we go on any spending sprees. I have a couple of small jobs that need to be done around the house. That’s my spending planned so we won’t be getting too carried away with the money,” she added.
