The Christmas season has just passed but a Limerick man who collected a €209,241 has decided with his wife to share the blessings with family and friends. This makes him an out of season Santa of sorts.
The man, who does not want to be identified, won through a Lotto Match 5 + Bonus quick pick he bought at the Kelly’s Costcutter on Main Street in Foynes. While he and his wife are thrilled, they say it is such a big sum for one man and have since made the decision to share with family and friends. With Valentine’s day coming a few days after he won, the man bought a handbag for his wife.
The happy couple says they are happy to make a difference on a lot of people’s lives.
