A married Irish woman who won €1million received the winning ticket as a Mother’s day gift from her daughter. Now one of the first things on her to do list is to pay off her daughter’s mortgage, and set up a savings fund for her too.
She came to the lottery offices to claim her prize which she won in the Easter Millionaire Raffle Draw.
The woman who prefers to remain anonymous says she had been away for the weekend and had only checked her tickets the night before she claimed her check. She had to look for the ticket which she had misplaced, only to find it had made her a millionaire.
Other plans include meeting TVpresenter Marty Whelan who drew the winning numbers, taking a trip to Dubai, and buying her husband a new car. But before all that, she will head over to the Shelbourne Hotel for afternoon tea, because that is what rich people do.
