Time of the essence for Cork family’s Lotto win

Wednesday, 9th January, 2019 5:01pm

A Cork family were just in the knick of time to collect a cool million at Lotto HQ this week.

The family won €1 million in the Lotto Plus 1 draw on 3 November 2018, however they had no idea of their luck until they found the ticket just a few days before Christmas.

Speaking about the win, the family said: “We had absolutely no idea that we had a Lotto ticket worth €1 million in the house for two months. It was Christmas week and we were clearing out one of the rooms when we came across this Lotto ticket so we checked it on the National Lottery phone app to make sure there was nothing on it before we put it in the bin!

“My wife and I were just sat there stunned into silence when we realised it was worth a million euro. It certainly made it a wonderful Christmas knowing that we would soon be millionaires once we collected the prize.”

The lucky Normal Play ticket was purchased at the Centra store on Main Street in Carrigtwohill.

Meanwhile in Bandon Luke Holland, a 24 year old geologist, got his New Year off to a great start by unearthing a €42,000 windfall on ‘Winning Streak’ at the weekend. Luke, who graduated with a degree in geology from UCD, lives in Mullingar where he works in mineral exploration. There’s been great excitement in Bandon at Luke’s ‘Winning Streak’ appearance over the Christmas period especially from his mum and dad Collette and Sean, his two brothers Simon and Adam and girlfriend Patricia.
