Delighted family take €5m Lotto win home

Brian McDonald

A FAMILY from the West of Ireland travelled home from Dublin last night more than €5m richer than when they arrived in the capital.

The family, who are from Galway and want to remain anonymous, collected their winnings from last Saturday's Lotto rollover draw at National Lottery headquarters yesterday morning.

The winners said they were delighted, but have yet to decide exactly how they will spend their €5,076,220.

One member of the family bought the winning €4 quickpick ticket at the Happy Days newsagent at Galway Shopping Centre on the Headford Road a short time before the big draw on Saturday night.

Mary Daly, who runs the retail outlet with her husband Stephen, said she had no idea who the winners were.

"It certainly wasn't me or Stephen, but we are delighted for them," Mary said.
