A lucky Wicklow woman is one of our latest scratch card winners as she bagged herself a €40,000 National Lottery win on a €3 card inserted by her sister in a good luck card to mark her new job.
Ciara Moore (22) from Grangecon in Co. Wicklow and her sister, Áine, were joined in the National Lottery Winners’ Room with their extended family to pick up the €40,000 prize.
It has been an incredible week for Ciara who had just started her new career as a childcare professional before she landed the top prize on the Money Multiplier 10X scratch card.
“I started a new job on Monday and the night before, my lovely sister Áine handed me a good luck card with a scratch card inside – little did I know how lucky it would be!”
The lucky €3 Money Multiplier 10X scratch card was purchased at the Topaz Deerpark Service Station on the Dublin Road in Carlow Town.
“There’s only two things that I really need – an upgrade to my car and a family holiday in the next couple of months and then I’ll be happy. I have the best family in the world so I’ll definitely have to treat them, especially my sister Áine seeing as how she bought me the ticket,” she laughed.
Meanwhile, a delighted West Cork woman left National Lottery HQ €30,000 richer after winning big on an All Cash Tripler scratch card. The scratch card was bought for the lucky winner by her husband at the Maxol Mace shop in, Ballincollig, Co. Cork, last week. “I didn’t scratch it until the next day and could not believe my eyes when I saw I had won €30,000. Top of the list is a holiday to Spain where a family member lives. We had planned to go anyway but now we can upgrade and book a nice hotel!”
In 2017 alone, the National Lottery raised over €225 million for good causes. This level of funding has made a significant difference to communities, projects and individuals in the areas of Youth, Sports, Recreation, Amenities, Health, Welfare, Arts, Culture, National Heritage and the Irish Language.
