Grandchildren to Benefit from €4.5million Irish Lotto Win

2017-06-09 – Grandchildren to benefit from Irish Lotto winA family syndicate from Dublin, Ireland are celebrating after they won a €4.5million Irish Lotto jackpot in the May 27 draw and it’s great news for the younger members of the family.

The winners have asked to remain anonymous, that’s just like the syndicate from Dublin that won a €250,000 Irish Lotto Plus 2 prize.

One of the lucky Irish Lotto winners is a grandmother. She had been out on Saturday evening so hadn’t had a chance to find out if their Irish Lotto ticket was a winner or not. That’s unlike the recent €250,000 Irish Lotto Plus 2 winner who watched the draw live on television. After having her Sunday lunch, the lucky winner bought a newspaper and then decided to check the Irish Lotto result.

Unbelieving of her win, she quickly called her son and asked him to check the results just in case she was seeing things. Later that day she saw a TV report about the Irish Lotto jackpot and she thought to herself, “Oh they are talking about me!” It’s the latest big win in Dublin after a family won a €11.3m Irish Lotto jackpot last year.

Their total win was €4,541,179 and their winning numbers were: 02-05-12-34-41-47. The woman and her three children say they are over the moon with their €4.5m Irish Lotto win. The family formed an Irish Lotto syndicate last year.

The Irish Lotto jackpot winning family say they are yet to tell their extended family about their big win. That will change soon though and they plan holding a big party in the coming weeks. That will see each of her grandchildren receiving a “generous cheque.” A couple from Meath in Ireland said they’d give nearly all their €200,000 Irish Lotto win to their grandchildren. In the USA, Jadwiga Nowakowska from Chicago also said she’d invest her $1m Powerball win in the youngest members of the family.

As for her own plans on how to spend her share of the Irish Lotto win, the grandmother plans to take a holiday. Also on the shopping list is decorating her house and possibly bidding on another.

She added: “We are not going to go mad with this win, but it will certainly mean that life will be easier and there will be security for my adult children also. Nobody will retire on this but it will make all our lives more comfortable.
