€500,000 DailyMillion Plus winner vows to fight homelessness

‘This win is for all of those people in Dublin who struggle to find a bed at night,’ exclaimed an emotional Dublin woman who claimed her €500,000 DailyMillion Plus prize from the 9pm draw on Saturday 25 February.

The incredible Dublin woman vowed to assist the fight against homelessness on the streets of Dublin with her half million euro win.

‘As a proud Dublin woman, it breaks my heart to see so many ordinary decent people become homeless in our city.

To celebrate my win, I will spend the day visiting as many homeless people as I can to assist them financially.'

The passionate winner also said that, in the long term, she wants to commit to a plan to help as many homeless people as she can.

Speaking about her win she said, ‘I don’t usually play the Daily Million draw, it was a spur of the moment decision when I was buying my Lotto ticket,’.

‘I was checking my Lotto numbers at 9.30pm on Saturday night when I remembered my Daily Million ticket. I went absolutely mad! I phoned all of my friends and we were all in the Shelbourne Hotel by 10pm sipping champagne,’ she laughed.
