Lotto luck strikes again in Fermoy

Maria Herlihy

Less than one week after a 15 person work syndicate from Herlihy's Centra Store in Fermoy picked up their cheque for €117,970, another punter bought a Diamond Bingo Double scratch card and won €30,000 in the same shop.

On Monday the winner of the €30,000 said: "It is a great time of the year to win the money as I have children starting college and going back to school soon, so I am delighted that this will help me out a lot and I might change our car too.

"I heard the news about the staff winning on Lotto and was happy for them all. Little did I know I would be winning 30 grand in the shop days later."

The 15 member work syndicate each bagged almost from a ticket bought in the store.  They won after the syndicate matched five numbers and the bonus on the Lotto draw from July 25.  The winning ticket was worth just over €117,000.
