'Sure, isn't it a grand feeling': Kilkenny man collects €1m Daily Million prize

A Kilkenny man has become the latest Irish millionaire as he claimed his €1m Daily Million prize from the National Lottery.

When asked how it felt, he simply replied: "As sure, isn't it a grand feeling" as he folded the cheque and placed it in his pocket.

The winning ticket was as Quick Pick sold last month at the Londis Callan Co-Op in Kilkenny.

The man said: “I checked my ticket just before 10pm that night and found out that I was a millionaire.

"I couldn’t believe it – in fact I still can’t believe it but I’m going to take my time to see what I want to do with the money.

"There’ll be no spending spree for the foreseeable future anyway.”

A spokesperson for the National Lottery said: “This win is just the latest in a real hot streak for our Daily Million players across the country.

"So far in 2019, there has been a total eight top prize winners of the Daily Million and Plus games. In the past seven days alone, we have had two €500,000 Daily Million Plus top prize winners.”
