A lucky family swoop €500,000 Lotto win with birthday numbers.

A delighted family collected their winnings of €500,000 after winning the Lotto jackpot with lucky birthday numbers.

“It is such an amazing experience to share this feeling with family and close friends,” said winner Nicholas Walsh from Grannagh, Co. Kilkenny.

“My lucky numbers have always been the birthday dates of every family member which means they will all probably expect a big hand-out,” he said.

Discussing his plans for his win, he said: “We need to put a new kitchen into the house but I am also going to treat myself to a Mini Countryman car. Family is a very important part of our lives. I have four children and two grandchildren so I will make sure that they are well taken care of.”

The winning Normal Play ticket was sold at Rellis Newsagents, Ballybricken in neighbouring Co. Waterford.
