“I feel like the luckiest woman in Ireland,” said Ms Grace, adding: “I don’t play scratch cards all that often, so I guess I am just very lucky.” The National Lottery winner revealed that in actual fact, she had her mother to thank for the winnings scratch card which came from Dunphy’s Centra Store. A syndicate from Kilkenny also recently won big when they claimed a €453,000 prize from the Irish Lotto.
“My mother bought me the Bingo Times 10 scratch card last week as a treat and I think she feared the worst as I started screaming the house down when I realised I’d won the €50,000 top prize!” the 40-year-old said that after appearing on the Winning Streak gameshow in 2007, winning another National Lottery prize was “like a dream.” A woman from Cork recently ensured that she won the irish Lotto jackpot after doubling her entries for a specific draw.
“€50,000 is an incredible amount of money, and to win this amount a second time is like a dream,” she said, adding that in 2007 her Winning Streak prize money was life-changing for the whole family. “It gave us the freedom to make a lot of improvements in our lives.” A Cork man who won €500,000 on the EuroMillions Plus lottery also described his win as life-changing.
