Lottery24 – Couple won €2.5m euro on the Irish Lotto
A syndicate of two Irish Lotto players were enjoying a summer weekend in Rosslare, in the South East of Ireland, when they purchased a ticket that won them €2.5m.
The pair, who have decided to remain anonymous, collected their jackpot win earlier this week at the National Lottery offices in Dublin. In total the lucky Irish Lotto winners won €2,501,472.
Their winning numbers were 9, 26, 33, 37, 40, 44 and the bonus number 42. The winning ticket was purchased from An Post in Rosslare Harbour, Co Wexford on Saturday August 8.
They’re the latest big Irish winners after lottery winner Gerald Murphy from Ballinrobe purchased an Irish Lotto ticket from his brother-in-law’s store last month and won €6,384,673. In June a player from Adare won a €2 million Irish Lotto prize.
The lucky winners said, “We’re over the moon. Can’t believe our luck!” They added, “We have lots of friends and family and we’re looking forward to making their lives a lot easier.”
The Irish Lotto winners are also religious and one half of the syndicate said “my faith has come through for me today”. That’s an idea they share with the man from Hamilton who won a $9.33m New Zealand Powerball jackpot this week.
Of course not all their lottery winnings will be helping others and they said “Once that’s done, we might even spend a bit on ourselves.” Usually top of the spending list is travelling around the world. John and Jenny Taylor from Eton in Surrey, England planned to travel to New Zealand and Australia after winning £137.945 on the EuroMillions in May. UK Lotto winners Denise and Robert Scarr went on a world cruise after their £6.3m win this April. This pair of lottery winners are no exception to the rule and plan on going to France, Germany and other parts of Europe later this year.
£4.3m UK Lotto winner Jane Lewis from Halifax in England, planned to buy a holiday home in her beloved Southport after her big win. This Irish Lotto winning couple say that they are “really fond” of Rosslare and might consider buying a mobile home there “for more great Lotto winning weekends.”
