After buying his food, he used the leftover change to purchase the winning ticket.

Her son bought his lucky Quick Pick ticket at the Applegreen Service Station on North Street in Swords on the day of the draw.

“The ticket was purchased with money which my mother gave me for my lunch and once I found out about the prize, I didn’t have to think twice about sharing it”, he said.

“It took some time to convince her that we won but I think the reality sinks in once you arrive at the National Lottery offices.’

His mother added: “This win has completely come out of the blue and we haven’t really had a chance to think about our winnings”.

“We need to be very sensible and plan for my son’s future so we will have to open a special savings account for him. I, however, will be treating myself to a new car,” she laughed.
