HQ revealed that the only thing on his shopping list
for the moment is to hire a skip and clear out his
He claimed the top prize on the Lotto Plus 2 draw on
Saturday, 4th May.
Speaking of his plans, the Donegal man said: “It’s
funny, when I checked my ticket numbers online and I
realised I had won, I was barely able to sit still.
It’s crazy now when I say it but once the shock had
settled, I was thinking, I could go back to college
part-time, I could get a new car and I could get a
house, but all I can think of is hiring a skip to
clear out some clutter in my current home.”
“It’s been something on my mind for a while and I
keep putting the clearout on the long finger but
when I get home later today, the first thing I’ll be
doing is ordering that skip and after that, we’ll
see what happens.”
He bought his Lotto
Quick Pick ticket in the Eason’s store in the
Letterkenny Shopping Centre.
A spokesperson from the National Lottery said:
“Winners come through our doors with all types of
plans. Some tell us they are planning extravagant
purchases, like cars and trips around the world.
Others use their windfalls to help kick-start a
business idea or even use their win to fund a
college course, but this is the first time anyone
has ever come in and said their first purchase will
be a skip! We wish our latest Donegal winner the
very best of luck in his future.”
