This is a very small town and to have sold a Lotto Plus 1 and a EuroMillions Plus winning ticket within a few months is brilliant.”He said there is a lot of passing traffic through the town, especially at weekends, so it could be anybody. “We are only six miles from the border and get a lot of visitors so who knows. Whoever it is we are thrilled for them.” In February Barclay’s shop sold a EuroMillions Plus winning ticket won by 84-year-old retired farmer, Charlie Meehan, from Manorcunningham. Charlie, who decided to go public with his win, revealed he was in recovery from cancer and declared at the time he was going to enjoy his winnings with his family.A National Lottery spokesperson said today: “What are the odds! Three big wins in a few months in a small town. What a great day it is for Barclay’s newsagents. We are thrilled for the locals in Raphoe and urge everybody to check their tickets to see if they are Ireland’s newsest Lotto millionaire.”Almost 30 cent in every euro spent on National Lottery games goes back to Good Causes all over Ireland in the areas of sport, health, arts, culture, heritage, youth, community and the Irish language. Last year alone more than €227 million was raised for Good Causes, the equivalent of €620,000 a day.Breaking: Lotto fever sweeps Raphoe as players wins million euro jackpot! was last modified: April 2nd, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Barclay’sCentralottoRaphoelast_img
