A PLUCKY Kerry man has braved the force of Storm Ali to travel to Lotto HQ in Dublin to collect a cheque for €500,000 after he won the EuroMillions Plus top prize on Friday August 31st.

The lucky Kerry man who purchased his ticket at the Spar Store in Cahirciveen has discussed how he is keeping mega win private despite the intense speculation which has gripped the inhabitants Cahersiveen as they waited for the €500,000 EuroMillions winner to finally claim their prize.

“It’s been great craic. I have kept the win very quiet but the community of Caherciveen haven’t spoken about anything else since this EuroMillions win was announced – it’s been the talk of the town for the past three weeks! The people of Kerry love a good lottery win, that’s for sure. There has been lots of gossip among neighbours, friends and colleagues as to who the winner is! They have their eyes peeled for local cars making their way on the road to Dublin in the hope they might be able to catch the winner out,” he joked.

The lucky Kerry man who has become the 22nd EuroMillion Plus top prize winner in Ireland in 2018 also stated that he was less than surprised that his lucky numbers came up due to his strong belief that he would one day win a big lottery prize:

“I’ve been planning this day for years because I just always knew I would win big one day, it’s difficult to explain. The half a million won’t completely change my life but it gives me incredible freedom to make changes and to help those which are closest to me. I won’t be rushing into a spending splurge just yet but I am planning to buy a new house so it will be an incredible feeling knowing that I will be mortgage free for the rest of my life,” he said.

Meanwhile, EuroMillions Mega Draw on Friday will guarantee a jackpot of an incredible €130 million.
