Posted by


A KERRY man’s prayers were answered when he realised he had won  €289,861 on the Lotto draw while he was at Mass last Sunday!

Celebrating his  massive €289,861 Lotto Match 5 + Bonus prize at Lottery HQ in Dublin today, the winning Kerry dad explained how his family were completely unaware of their huge Lotto win until they heard chat about it at Mass the following morning:

“Obviously the Lotto was the talk of the town on Sunday morning but I was still none the wiser that I had the winning ticket in my pocket! It was only when I got to Mass and heard chatter about the big win and speculation about who the winner might be. As soon as I heard where the ticket was sold, I just knew it was me. I sat through the rest of Mass knowing that I’d be rushing straight home afterwards to check my ticket,” he grinned.

The delighted Kerry man, who wished to remain anonymous, purchased his winning Quick Pick ticket at Buckley’s Swift Service Station in Ballybunion, on the day of the draw.

After collecting his Lotto cheque for over €289,000, the Kerry father outlined his plans for the win which would put his family first and foremost.

“It’s just a wonderful amount of money to win. We’ll be able to pay off the mortgage and a few other bills but we’ll be dividing it up among all of the children and other family members. We’ve also decided to put some money towards a once in a lifetime family holiday in the sun which we will never forget. I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate this win,” he said.
