Someone Won €500,000 Last Night With A Ticket Bought In Kerry

Posted by


SOMEONE who bought their ticket in Kerry is today celebrating a massive €500,000 EuroMillions Plus win from last night’s draw.

And the owners of the Spar shop in Caherciveen which sold the winning ticket proved it has the Midas touch as they sold a Lotto ticket that shared a mega €6.7 Lotto Jackpot win in 2011, and a €2.4 winning Lotto jackpot winning ticket in a shop they owned previously in the town in 2003.

Owners of the lucky store, Tracy and Jack Fitzpatrick, were today celebrating their latest success with huge excitement and speculation over who the lucky winner is.

“We can’t believe it! There is huge excitement and buzz in the store today everybody is in great form. We are a very busy shop with a lot of passing traffic and we had a bumper summer with tourists so it could be a local or a visitor. But we are keeping our fingers crossed it is a local!” said Tracy.

The shop, which employs around 24 staff, underwent a revamp this summer adding a salad counter and barista bar.

“We are certainly a lucky shop and no strangers to the big winners. It is fantastic for the town and local community.”

This is the 22nd lucky EuroMillion Plus winner in Ireland so far this year.

A National Lottery spokesperson said: “We are absolutely delighted for Co. Kerry landing this big win and we hope it makes up for the disappointment at not being in Croke Park for tomorrow’s big football game! We are urging all our players in Kerry, or anybody who was visiting Caherciveen, to check their tickets. And if somebody realizes they are the lucky ticket holder we are asking them to sign the back of the ticket and keep it safe until they contact the National Lottery Office on Monday.”
