The family wasted no time in collecting their prize from National Lottery HQ in Dublin following their weekend win and they admitted that they are still in utter disbelief at their good fortune:
“It just doesn’t feel real, even now as we’re sat here in the winners’ room” said the winning dad.
The winning Normal Play ticket was purchased on the day of the draw at Oldtown Stores in Oldtown in Letterkenny.
Discussing their plans for their EuroMillions winnings, the family say that they plan on paying off their mortgage and the majority of the money left over will be set aside for their children’s futures:
“It’s an incredible prize which will make a huge difference to our family. We’re looking forward to being mortgage free but most importantly, the win means that our children will have the best possible start in life,” said the delighted dad.
The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased on the day of the draw at Byrne’s Foodstore in Kilcar in Co. Donegal.
The winning Lotto numbers for the draw on Saturday, June 9, were: 11, 12, 19, 27, 30, 38 and the Bonus 16.
