Couple celebrate EuroMillions win

A married couple from Killarney, Co. Kerry today collected a EuroMillions cheque for €207,424.

The couple who wish to remain anonymous are regular Lottery players.

The lucky husband, who purchased the winning €6 quick pick in O’Connor’s store on Beech Road, Killarney, said: “I’ve been playing all the games for years, and I win regularly. My last big win was €250 just before Christmas, so today’s cheque definitely tops that!”

‘We’re really boring winners. We’re going to save this money to look after our family, ” said his wife. “But there will be some treats, and one of them is a looked forward to trip to the Kildare Designer Village on the way home to Killarney, to do some timely designer retail damage!

“Another treat is a trip to Disneyland in Florida for the family later in the year. But don’t worry; we won’t be flying first class or anything extravagant.”

The prize was a Match 5 plus Bonus prize in the EuroMillions draw on Tuesday, March 10, 2015.

It is the latest lottery win for the county of Kerry, where players have now won over €1million in National Lottery prizes in recent weeks.

A family syndicate that bought a ticket in Castlemaine won €315,070 in the EuroMillions draw for Friday, March 6, 2015. On the same night, a €3 quick pick ticket bought in Glenflesk Post Office, won another lucky player €500,000.
