A YOUNG married couple from Ennis who have won €268,533 on EuroMillions are keeping it quiet.
They, along with two other prizewinners who collected their bounty at the National Lottery offices in Dublin on this Tuesday, are remaining anonymous. The three prizewinnings added up to a total of €468,000.
The Ennis couple matched five numbers and one Lucky Star on Friday, August 22 to win their prize, but they didn’t discover the news until this past weekend.
“I spotted the ticket lying in the jeep on Sunday and thought, I must check that,”said the husband.
“We’ll pay off the mortgage and put it towards the kids’ college fund”, said the happy wife. “I was made redundant a few months ago, so this is a blessing for us.”
The couple bought their lucky ticket in Day Today News in Arthur’s Quay Shopping Centre in Limerick City on Friday, August 22.
