Lotto winner planning New Year in style

A WOMAN in her 20s will be celebrating New Year in style after scooping a quarter of a million in the Lotto.

The lucky winner – who wishes to remain anonymous – took time out from her job in Dublin to pick up her cheque.

She bought her €4 quickpick for the St Stephen's Day draw using her €5 win from the previous draw. "I can't believe it – it hasn't sunk in yet," she laughed.

She spent the night of the draw oblivious to her big win. Later on the next day, she checked the numbers on the ticket checker at the shops.

"It said that it was a winning ticket and I thought it was probably €1,000," she said.

She now plans a career change and to buy a house in Dublin, saying "that's been a priority for a while now".
