The anonymous Irishman missed Euromillions jackpot by one of the Lucky Stars back on May 19th, with a ticket he purchased from the Gwalia Stores in Gorey. He only discovered the winning ticket was sold in his area after one of the relatives informed his family there was a major Euromillions victory in his hometown.
“My mother hadn’t actually bought a ticket for the draw so she had no interest in the news. As soon as I heard, I ran out to my car and there it was sitting on my dashboard, the winning ticket worth a quarter of a million euro,” he recalled.
The winner said he’ll use some of the money to buy “some posh seats” for the All-Ireland Hurling Final between Kilkenny and Yellow Bellies in Croke Park this September. His plans also include moving out of his family home to a place of his own, and enjoying his future completely mortgage free.
“The past few days have given us the opportunity to take some time out and really consider the impact of the win on the whole family. This win is going to make a huge difference to so many people. It’s going to be a great adventure as we change our lives for the better,” said the Gorey resident.
