Irish Lotto winner is her family’s good luck charm

Lottery24 – Irish Lotto winner is her family’s good luck charmA lottery player from Northern Ireland has won £250,000 on a Irish Lotto Plus 1 ticket after she stopped off to buy one in Dublin last week.

The winner, whose prize was worth €350,000 – just under £250,000, toasted her win together with lottery officials and a bottle of champagne, but chose to remain anonymous as she collected her Irish Lotto Plus 1 prize. Returning to Dublin from her home in Northern Ireland in order to collect the prize, the lottery winner said that she hasn’t been able to sleep since she discovered that she had won, and exactly how much she had won, but she also said that the money will be put to good use.

“It’s fantastic news – a lovely amount of money which we’ll use to make some improvements at home,” the Irish Lotto winner told lottery officials in Dublin. “We’d been planning to upgrade the car, so we can get a better upgrade now, and we’ll take a family holiday at some point as well.”

The Irish Lotto winner also added that her family have always referred to her as the lucky member of the family, and together with her husband she admitted that they are probably right following her impressive Irish Lotto windfall. And despite the fact that the top prize was not quite as big as another anonymous player’s jackpot, the winner said that the fortune was a perfect amount for her family.

The Northern Irish woman was not the only lottery winner in Dublin this week, as a Galway couple were also celebrating their win of €200,000 on a scratch card. The couple, who also chose to remain anonymous, said that the revelation that they had won big was so shocking, they both thought they were seeing things.

“I couldn’t believe it when the Scratch Card revealed the winning numbers,” said one half of the lucky couple, “my brain couldn’t quite register what was happening. We’re absolutely thrilled and are looking forward to planning how to spend our winnings,” they finished, admitting that they had not yet had time to think about holidays, homes and cars.
