A County Clare family travelled to National Lottery HQ in Dublin today to collect a cheque for €4,433,754.
The family, who wish to remain anonymous, purchased their quickpick ticket at Reddan’s Store and Post Office in Sixmilebridge on Friday. They were the sole winner Saturday night’s jackpot.
Clare has enjoyed an unprecedented run of luck over the past year in particular with four lottery win’s being scooped in the county since last August and six in total since 2008.
In March of this year, a €24 mix play winning ticket scooped a massive €8,302,204 prize for another lucky winner. That ticket was bought in Kilrush in west Clare.
Last November, a couple from Quin Co Clare won a Lotto jackpot worth €5,553,404 while in August last year, a Limerick woman won a €6m jackpot with a ticket purchased in Lahinch.
In May 2012 a €2,688,982 winning ticket was sold in Liddy’s Costcutters, Roslevan Shopping Centre, Ennis.
In 2008, a staff and customers syndicate at a hardware store in Ennis celebrated a €2m lotto win which cames just eight months after their shop and factory were completely destroyed by fire.
