The Galway shop owner was overjoyed to hear the news that one of his customer’s had a windfall in last night’s Lotto draw: “We were delighted to receive the call that our family-run shop sold the winning Match 5 + Bonus ticket in last night’s Lotto draw. Our store employs over 70 members of staff so we’re certain that excitement will grow around the shop and the town as soon as word starts to spread. It’s great news for the community and we hope that the winner really enjoys their win.”
