Limerick couple claim  €113,000 Lotto prize

A couple from Co Limerick are celebrating today after they claimed €113,661 from Lotto HQ.

The lucky pair won the Match 5 + Bonus prize for the main Lotto draw on Saturday, June 18.

The delighted couple who wish to remain private, purchased their Quick Pick selection ticket at Newcastle West Service Station in Newcastlewest, Co Limerick on the day of the draw.

There were two winners of the Match 5 + Bonus prize in the main Lotto draw on Saturday 18 June, each claiming €113,661 in prize money.

The other winning ticket was sold at Eason Newsagents on O’Connell Street in Dublin City.

“We actually went to the shop to specifically play the Lotto on the Saturday evening. I came out of the shop, only to realise that I had forgotten to do it! I went back in and played a Quick Pick and from that moment, we knew that there would be something special about that ticket,” laughed the husband.

The winning couple plan to spend their €113,661 prize sensibly with some small treats to help them to celebrate.

“The timing of this win is absolutely perfect,” he added.

“We have some bills that we would like to pay off and after that I think we might have a holiday and maybe we will upgrade our car.”

Wednesday’s jackpot is an estimated €4.5m.
