A syndicate composed of family members from Co Kildare won a €500,000 jackpot from the Euromillions Lottery’s October 25 draw. The family, who do not wish to be identified, bought the winning ticket at a shop in Athy.
The winners were described as understandably excited when they made their claim at the lottery offices and later celebrated with champagne. They shared that they had been betting for years and, like most bettors, never really expected they would win.
They are still in the process of thinking over what they will use their money for, but with Christmas looming, it is a safe bet that will be part of their plans.
