We like this local mum's attitude!
A woman from Donegal was one of the four lucky winners of the EuroMillions draw on 6th April – bagging a brilliant €40,872.
The unforgettable win came after the woman had bought a ticket at the Oasis Shop in Letterkenny University Hospital. Her daughter checked the ticket the next day, and the excitement has been building until the woman could collect her winnings this week.
Sitting in the winner’s room with her son, she said: “My daughter checked the ticket the next day and said I’d won. I thought she was having me on until I saw her eyes tear up.
“This is the first time I’ve ever won anything so I am delighted. I am going to have some fun spending this with my friends and family – You only live once”.
This Friday will see a special Mega EuroMillions Draw taking place with a guaranteed prize of €130 million (20th April).
National Lottery CEO, Dermot Griffin, said: “This is an incredible amount of money and we are really excited at the prospect of an Irish winner. The jackpot will roll to €130 million regardless of whether or not tomorrow’s EuroMillions jackpot of €25 million is won. If the winner is one of our Irish players, this will be the highest prize ever won in the National Lottery’s 31 year history”
