Ballymote man wins big on lottery scratchcard
A Ballymote man was celebrating last week after winning big on a scratchcard.
He was sitting in the National Lottery winner's room last week clutching a cheque for €200,000 which he won on a National Lottery scratch card.
The player, in his 20's, won the tidy sum on an All Cash Spectacular scratch card he bought in Kane's SuperValu store on Lord Edward Street, in Ballymote, Co. Sligo.
Many people who sit in the Winner's Room haven't thought about what they will do with their winnings but this lucky guy knew exactly what he was going to do with his windfall - starting with a sun holiday with his brother (who travelled down to Dublin with him) and friends.
"I'm leaving here now to go to the bank, then we're heading straight to the travel agents and going on holiday as soon as possible.
"It will be the two of us and a couple of close friends only".
He also revealed that he had planned to buy a brand new car after his sunshine trip was over.
