Lottery winner claims her prize

The mystery winner of the €6,496,219 Lotto jackpot earlier this month has come forward.
It was a very happy lead-in to the weekend for the lucky Meath woman who called to National Lottery offices this morning to collect her super Lotto jackpot prize.
The lady, who did not wish to be identified, won this jackpot on a €12 Multi Draw ticket for two draws which was purchased in Mimnagh’s shop on Main Street, Slane on Tuesday 8th April.
Some of the ticket lines were composed of birthdays, but it was the Quick Pick line that won the jackpot. This bumper Lotto draw was held on Wednesday 9th April.
“I was at home on the Thursday morning when the telephone rang and it was my daughter. She said that the winning Lotto ticket for the big jackpot was sold in Slane. She then read out the numbers to me on the telephone and I had the ticket in my hand, so I realised straight away that I was the winner. I was in total shock, total denial, said nothing, and continued the conversation as normal,” she said.
“For the rest of the day, I continued to work on as if nothing had happened. There are certain routines everyday and they have to be carried out, part and parcel of life, really. But when the evening came, I decided I should tell the family. They were totally delighted with the good news,” said the lucky lady over a glass of champagne in National Lottery offices.
“I haven’t any particular plans for the win. I’ll be helping out the family anyway and I have never been to America, so I would like to travel, when I’ve gotten used to the good news. Florida seems lovely all year round, so maybe I’ll go there’, she said.
