Thurles Lottery Winners Collect Their Prize

lottoThe winner of last Wednesday’s National Lotto jackpot, with the winning ticket sold here in Thurles, Co Tipperary, collected their cheque today.

The winners who scooped a massive €10,613,747 are a long playing lotto family syndicate here from Tipperary and have chosen, as is their right, to remain anonymous.

The family members, according to, told Lotto administrators today they had been playing for years and now plan to clear their bills and take a nice holiday.

An earlier rumour, fanned by The Sun newspaper, that Tipperary hurling star Lar Corbett was the winner, after he had refused to confirm or deny the reports, was denied by the hurling great on Twitter earlier today and broken by Tipp FM radio.

All eyes will be watching now to see who goes on holiday in the near future.
