Suburb's 2nd Lotto win in two months

RATHFARNHAM is proving to be a very lucky Dublin suburb after it banked a second lotto win in just two months.

The winner of this week's midweek lotto walked away with €2m after he purchased a €4 Quick Pick ticket. It was sold at Supervalu, Rose mount Shopping Centre, Rath-farnham.

Ireland's newest millionaire, who wishes to remain anony-mous, said that he had to triple-check the results.


"I checked the numbers on my mobile and just couldn't stop shaking. I didn't believe my eyes," he said. "I turned on Aertel and went from that to the ticket to the phone. I must've checked it a thousand times."

It's the second Lotto jackpot win for Rathfarnham this year. Last month, a syndicate from South Dublin who bought a ticket in the Bus Stop Kiosk in Nutgrove Shopping Centre, Rathfarnham won over €3.9m.
