National Lottery ticket worth €1 million sold in Ballyfermot
THERE was celebrations in Ballyfermot today after it emerged that a local store sold Sunday’s Daily Million top prize ticket worth €1,000,000.
The winning quick pick ticket was sold on the day of the draw at Londis on Ballyfermot Road, Drumfinn.
According to the National Lottery, it is the second big win for the store in just two months after it sold a winning Christmas Countdown scratch card worth €100,000 in November.
At the announcement, assistant manager Sonny Butt said: “We’re a local store embedded in the community.
“This is our second big win for the shop.
“We sold a scratch card worth €100,000 just before Christmas so our customers are very excited.
“We feel very famous in here at the moment with all the media attention!”
Sandra Carrick has been a Sales Assistant at the store since it opened in 2007.
After the news was revealed, she spoke of what the latest win means for staff in the local store.
“I’ve been here in this store since day one”, Sandra said.
“I’d know all the customers personally and really hope it’s one of our regulars who have won and that the money is going back into our community here.
“The win has really given us a boost and lifted staff morale. We wish the winner the very best of luck and hope they spend it wisely!”
The National Lottery can confirm the Dublin winner has made contact with the claims department and arrangements are being made for them to collect their prize.
Nearly 30 cent in every €1 spent on all National Lottery games goes back to Good Causes in the areas of sport, youth, health, welfare, education, arts, heritage, and the Irish Language.
