US couple have €500,000 visit
IT was certainly a holiday to remember.
A couple visiting from the US will return home €500,000 richer after winning the top prize in last Friday's EuroMillions Plus draw.
The holidaymakers, who do not want to be identified, bought the ticket in Eason's on Dublin's O'Connell Street.
The husband said the win has a special significance for him, as he used to visit the store as a child.
"I wanted to recreate that special feeling from my childhood and visited Eason's on Friday. I bought a lottery ticket and here I am today."
