A Galway family is quietly celebrating after scooping last Saturday’s Lotto jackpot, worth more than €5 million. The lucky ticket was a €4 quick pick purchased in the Happy Days newsagents in Galway Shopping Centre.
The family, who wish to remain anonymous, said they were “delighted” with the win but have no immediate plans for the bounty.
Stephen Daly of Happy Days welcomed the win : “Its great news, and wonderful to see the money coming to Galway. There are lot of rumours circulating about who won the money but they have asked to remain anonymous so we’ll have to respect their wishes.”
Saturday’s win represents the second time Happy Days has sold a winning Lotto ticket. The newsagents sold a winner of a £1 million draw almost 15 years ago.
