For a lucky irishman who wishes to remain anonymous, a simple €3 Quick Pick ticket he had bought from Breda Cosgrove’s shop, Hyde Road, Prospect, Co Limerick was all it took for his life to change for the better in an instant. He won €500,000; not bad for a mere €3 investment.
The unnamed man thought he had won a big prize but had no idea he had snagged the top prize in the Tuesday night draw. As with most winners he had trouble believing he had really won big, but the lady at the Lottery was able to convince him it was true.
Now he is aiming for a top of the line car. He says that while in the past he used to window shop only, he feels that he can now afford to come in the showroom and pick what he wants.
