ONE lucky Limerick man is half a million euro richer this Thursday after winning big in the EuroMillions Plus draw.

The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, picked up the cheque for a cool €500,000 today at National Lottery offices in Dublin.

“I found out yesterday,” he said. “In my mind I thought it was a big prize but I didn’t believe it until I called the Lottery and the lady confirmed it was half a million - and I said thank you very much!”

The winner bought his lucky €3 Quick Pick ticket in Breda Cosgrove’s shop on the Hyde Road. He won the top prize in last Tuesday night’s EuroMillions Plus draw.

“I’m going to buy a new car – the one I have is grand but I’ve always wanted a top of the range one. I’ve just been window shopping until now – now I can open the door and come in!” he laughed.

Meanwhile, a guaranteed jackpot of €100m in Friday night’s EuroMillions Super Draw will have punters licking their lips.

To be in with a chance to bring your dreams to life, be sure to purchase your ticket before 7:30pm tomorrow evening.
