And one lucky Kerryman got his weekend off to a flying start after visiting National Lottery headquarters today (Friday) to collect his €500,000 winnings from Tuesday’s (May 2nd) EuroMillions Plus game.
The hardworking Kerry dad, who wishes to remain anonymous, bought his winning ticket at the Clifford & Sons Gala store in Mounthawk in Tralee, Co. Kerry.
‘My family and I are living in rented accommodation at the moment so the first thing we will do is buy a house locally with some beautiful views of Kerry,’ he beamed. ‘This win couldn’t come at a better time. On the day of the draw, we went to look at some second hand cars and we were haggling over a hundred euro on the price! I think we will be able to afford a new one now,’ he smiled.
‘I’m still in a complete daze since I found out that I had won. I always believed that buying lottery tickets was like buying a dream. Everybody likes to dream about winning the lottery but to actually go through the winning process is like nothing you could ever imagine.’
