Following confirmation of the draw results, celebrations are now underway in Ballina and the shop owner Jean Connor has stated her disbelief at the huge win: “I can’t believe it. I didn’t have my phone with me earlier and when I finally looked at it, I had a load of missed calls from the National Lottery – I had no idea what was going on! As a shopkeeper, especially in a lovely town like Ballina, it is the best news that you can get – to be told that one of your customers in a big lottery winner. We’ll enjoy some sensible celebrations today in the store and whoever the winner is, I hope that it changes their life for the better,” she said.
Nearly 30 cent in every €1 spent on all National Lottery games goes back to Good Causes in the areas of sport, youth, health, welfare, education, arts, heritage and the Irish Language. In total more than €5.6 Billion has been raised for Good Causes since the National Lottery was established 33 years ago. In 2019 alone, €252 million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.
