Gerard Murphy has just won a €6,384,673 jackpot from the lottery off a number combination he has been using since the lottery began. His long and patient wait has been rewarded.
It is a double celebration for his family because he bought his winning ticket from Murphy’s newsagents, a store owned by his brother-in-law Martin. The store has sold its share of lottery winners in the past including one for €150,000 in 1989 and another for €350,000 this past May.
Gerard Murphy is expected to claim his prize shortly.
