Anonymous Irish Lotto player wins €2 million jackpot in Limerick

Lottery24 – Irish Lotto player wins €2 million in LimerickAn Irish Lotto player who is based in Adare, Limerick, Ireland has won a huge €2 million prize on a Lotto ticket that she purchased for the draw on Saturday June 27th.

The Irish Lotto winner, who decided to remain anonymous despite telling lottery officials of some of her plans for the winnings, received her cheque for the €2 million prize from National Lottery officials in Dublin last week, and is now celebrating her good luck. Telling lottery officials that she bought her winning ticket based on their being a parking spot available outside the store, the winner said that she would never have won if the spot wasn’t there.

“I was driving through Adare and a spot was free outside the shop, so I popped in and bought an ice-cream and a Lotto ticket. If the spot wasn’t there, I would have driven on past,” said the lucky Limerick winner. The store in particular which sold the winning Irish Lotto ticket was Lohan’s Centra supermarket on the Main Street in Adare, and the staff at the store have said that there has been a huge buzz around the place ever since.

Soon after it emerged that they had sold the winning Irish Lotto ticket, Louise Cusack, a supervisor at the store, said that they were all very excited to find out who the winner was, while Andrew Lohan, who runs the store together with his brother Jeff, said it was a great accomplishment for everybody who works there. “This is the first time we have sold a winning ticket and we are delighted that we sold it,” said the store manager as he continued to say that the store gets a lot of tourist trade as well as local customers, so the Irish Lotto winner could easily be a passing visitor. This is not the first time that a Lotto player in Limerick has won big, however, as another anonymous winner from the country won more than €100,000 on the EuroMillions less than a year ago.

This year’s winner, who by the sounds of it is a local resident, said that she hasn’t quite decided how to spend her Irish Lotto winnings, although she did admit that she won’t be immediately taking off on a cruise or another vacation, “but I plan to share it with my family,” she concluded.
