Dungarvan Lotto winner claims €1m prize

A local shop located in the West Waterford coastal town of Dungarvan has been confirmed as the selling location of Saturday night’s Lotto Plus 1 ticket worth €1 million.

The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased on Friday 6th May at Nugent’s Centra on the Clonea Road in Abbeyside, Dungarvan, Co. Waterford.

Shop owner Frank Nugent was thrilled to hear about the weekend win: “I heard that there were two big prizes won over the weekend so was thrilled when I got the good news from the National Lottery to say that we were one of the winning locations.

"We have a team of 20 working here in store and as soon as word spreads that we sold a ticket worth €1 million, everyone in the shop will be absolutely delighted.

"This is the biggest prize that we have ever sold and it’s great that one of our customers has now become a millionaire since the weekend. We wish the lucky winner all the very best with their win!”

Saturday’s Lotto draw proved to be a life-changing event for two players in Waterford and Kilkenny who became millionaires overnight. The Waterford win of €1 million in the Lotto Plus 1 draw and the Kilkenny jackpot win of €8,508,720 have now brought the number of National Lottery millionaires to a total of 18 for the year to date.

Meanwhile, South Kilkenny Lotto players are urged to continue checking their tickets carefully as one player now has a ticket worth over €8.5 million. Ireland’s newest Lotto jackpot winner is advised to sign the back of their ticket and keep it safe.

The Marble County winner should make contact with the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email [email protected] and arrangements will be made for them to claim their life-altering prize.
