Lotto winners finally collect their cheque

Wednesday, 5th September, 2018 4:42pm

A Cork syndicate finally claimed their lotto jackpot prize after a calm and collected four week wait.

The lucky group, who have opted to keep their win private, decided not to rush things and to seek professional, financial and legal advice before loading up their bank accounts with their shared €8.3 million winnings.

“On the Sunday morning after the draw we all got the same message to say we had won the Lotto. The initial responses in the group were to ask, ‘Oh yeah, how much?’” said one of the syndicate members.

“We really didn’t believe any of it until we heard on the news that the winning ticket was sold in the locality, it was so just so surreal.”

The ecstatic syndicate, who purchased their winning Quick Pick ticket at Dunnes Stores in Bishopstown, also spoke of their spending plans once their prize was claimed.

“We’re glad that we took the time to claim the prize because we’ve had four weeks to carefully consider how the money will help us way into the future,” they said.

“We’re obviously not going to lose the run of ourselves but I know those within the group with mortgages and loans will be paying those off first while others are planning nice holidays and new cars. It’s all very exciting and new to us!” they added.
