Young Dublin couple scoop €500,000 EuroMillions plus win

Last Saturday’s Six Nations game between Ireland and Scotland will not live long in the memory of many Irish fans. One Dublin man however will remember it fondly for the moment he realised he had won a half a million euro!

'A message appeared on the National Lottery App which told me to contact National Lottery offices.

I was absolutely stunned!'

Describing that winning feeling in the National Lottery Winners’ Room, the lucky Dublin man said, ‘I was sitting at home on Saturday, watching the Irish rugby game when I suddenly remembered to check my EuroMillions ticket from the previous Friday (03 February) on my phone. A message appeared on the National Lottery App which told me to contact National Lottery offices. I was absolutely stunned.’

‘I didn’t know how much I had won so I frantically checked the numbers one by one – when it suddenly hit me, we’ve just won a half a million euro! My wife was out so I called her to tell her the news but she just wouldn’t believe me. I think our win is only starting to sink in now that we’re sitting in the National Lottery winners’ room drinking champagne,’ he smiled.

The young couple vowed to take some time out before making any important decisions on their win, 

‘We have a very young family so we will have to be very sensible with the money. We will take some time out before deciding on what to do. We will definitely book a nice family holiday for the summer and after that, who knows!’ he added. 

The EuroMillions draw on Friday February 17th, for the first time ever, one of the Ireland only Raffle winners will win an additional €1MILLION – GUARANTEED! Buy your ticket for the draw on the 17th February for your chance to win!
