The lucky winner of the 500,000 EuroMillions Plus winning ticket sold in Lifford hails from the North, it has emerged. However, the lucky family man has chosen to keep his identity a secret. The holder of the winning €500,000 EuroMillions Plus ticket travelled to National Lottery headquarters to claim their prize earlier this week. The winner was joined in the National Lottery winners’ room with his family to collect his cheque for a half million euro after he became the 19th EuroMillions Plus winner in Ireland so far this year. He purchased his lucky ticket for last Tuesday’s draw at McGettigan’s Applegreen Service Station, in Lifford, Co. Donegal. The winner said: “We couldn’t wait to get up to Dublin to finally hand over the winning ticket! I’d heard about the win locally on Wednesday morning so I scanned my ticket and couldn’t believe it when I realised I was holding a winner. It’s an incredible amount of money and I’m looking forward to the freedom it will bring me and my family.”
