A MARRIED couple from Kerry were celebrating a huge boost to their retirement coffers after they collected a massive Lotto Match 5 + Bonus prize of €149,347 in Dublin on Monday afternoon.

The overjoyed pair plan to use their Lotto windfall to enjoy their retirement by travelling the world in style ‘without scrimping and saving’.

The couple won the prize on Wednesday  last with a ticket they purchased at the O’Connor’s Service Station in Rathass, Tralee.

While enjoying a cool glass of champagne in the winners’ room, the winners could not hide their delight at the possibilities that their win has brought them in later life:

“This is huge for us! While we haven’t won millions, this amount will still go a long way for us to enjoy our retirement. We will be able to start planning for some holidays and trips away without having to worry about scrimping and saving here and there,” said the winning wife.

“It was a huge shock to the system, that’s for sure. We were at home last Wednesday night looking at the draw on TV and we noticed straight away that we had quite a good few numbers called out. We had no idea of what we had won so my husband got on the computer straight away and up popped a message to say we had won nearly €150,000! It was magical,” she said.

The happy couple have stated that they will enjoy the win with their closest family before they set off travelling the world in style:

“We have told our very close family and they are absolutely thrilled for us. We plan to share the win with our children but we have a bucket list of holiday destinations that we want to get through and now is the perfect opportunity to enjoy our retirement with some holidays of a lifetime,” she added.
