A Galway man is now €20,000 richer after his mother gifted him a National Lottery scratch card this week.

The delighted winner, from Connemara, received a €2 Diamond Deluxe Doubler from his mam after she bought it in the Eurospar in Carraroe.

"I didn’t scratch the card for a few days it was in the car, but when I did I couldn’t believe it when I saw I had won €20,000. What a lovely amount to win just on time for Christmas," the winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, said.

He plans to spend the winnings on house renovations and said his nieces, nephews and mother will be in for "some cracking Christmas treats".
