Local family run shop in Mount Merrion sells Lotto jackpot ticket worth €2,310,972
Dublin Lotto player becomes 31st National Lottery millionaire of 2022!
A small newsagent located at the heart of a residential community in Mount Merrion has been revealed as the selling location for Wednesday’s Lotto jackpot winning ticket worth an astonishing €2,310,972.
XL on The Rise in Mount Merrion, Co Dublin sold the winning Quick Pick ticket on the day of the draw, Wednesday 12th of October.
Owner of the store Adrian Peters has been running the shop thirty-eight years and was delighted to get hear the good news: “This is our first big Jackpot win, yes. We’re open since 1973, so this year we’ll be fifty years in business. We’re a small family run, local shop in the heart of Mount Merrion. We’re surrounded by a cluster of shops like the local hairdresser and chemist. Ah it was great to get the phone call that we’d sold the winning ticket. In these current times, it’s nice to get a bit of positive news”, he said.
“I actually forgot to buy my own ticket in the shop yesterday, so on my way home I stopped into a petrol station and bought one. So, I knew straight away when I got the call, it wasn’t me who won! It was very bittersweet! I do wish the winner all the best and I do hope it’s one of our local, loyal customers”, he added.
