A Clare couple are doing cartwheels all the way to the bank after they collected a €1,000,000 cheque from the EuroMillions.

Celebrations were in full swing at the National Lottery offices this morning as the delighted couple arrived to collect their winnings.

Pocketing €1,026,063 from Tuesday’s draw, the winners, who wish to remain anonymous, said they were “living a dream” they could never have imagined.

“We were so excited that we didn’t sleep a wink last night and my stomach started doing cartwheels as we arrived outside National Lottery offices this morning. It finally sunk in – we’re millionaires!” said the couple.

Among the bucket list that the pair have put together is an exotic holiday and a “big donation” to a local charity who means a great deal to their family.

The couple purchased their €6 Quick Pick ticket in Spar on Limerick Road in Ennis, Co. Clare on the day of the draw.

The couple’s luck did not end though with their EuroMillions win, they also scooped a €3 scratch card from last night’s national lottery draw too.
