EuroMillions winner planned to emigrate, but he's staying put after win

A builder from Co Kerry has won €500,000 in last Tuesday's EuroMillions Plus draw.

The lucky man - who wishes to remain anonymous - bought a €6 Quick Pick in Spar Express, Castlemaine Road in Tralee.

Speaking as he picked up his prize at Lotto headquarters, he said he had been planning on emigrating as things aren't good for builders in Kerry at the minute.

However, he's changed his mind now and will be staying put.

Tonight's EuroMillions jackpot is an estimated €30m.
