The lucky winner was from Co Monaghan who was thrilled to claim her Lotto Plus 2 prize of €250,000 from the Lotto draw on Wednesday 25th October.
The cool and collected customer bought her winning ticket in Supervalu on Fermanagh Street in Clones.
Accompanied by her friend of 20 years, the delighted winner revealed she has not yet shared news of her win with anybody else! She watched the draw live and knew straight away that she had won but waited until the next morning to pick up the phone to tell her friend.
Her pal said: “This could not have happened to a better person. I’m thrilled for her and thankful to her for letting me travel up today. I saw the day after the draw that there was a winner in Monaghan, and my first thoughts was it her! Ten minutes later my phone rang and it was! The first thing we talk about when we meet up is the Lotto and if we have had luck.”
