An amazing event took place in Limerick, Ireland, after a Hurling team Captain’s store helped his customers achieve victory after the store sold the winning Irish Lotto ticket worth a staggering €3.8 million ticket. Read more to find out the full story.
The owner and athlete of the store are Donal O’Grady. He is Captain of the Limerick Hurling Team and sold the winning Irish Lotto ticket worth almost €4 million in his store in Ballingarry. The win happened just weeks after a previous lucky couple from South Dublin won an Irish Lotto prize worth €5.3 million.
The manager of the store O’Grady’s Spar and Topaz told lottery reporters that he was in shock after one his of their customers ran up to them telling them that they had won the Irish Lotto jackpot!
“The ticket came out of our machine. It’s great,” said the athlete who took over the management of the store from his parents, Donie and Ruth in 2012. “The lottery rep rang me around half past ten last night to tell me the winning ticket was sold in our very own humble Spar in Ballingarry,” he explained.
The store owner went on to say that he was in total and utter shock when he first heard the news, finding it extremely difficult to believe with full conviction that his tiny store in Ireland managed to sell the Irish Lotto ticket. “It’s great for the locality and it’s great for rural Ireland,” he said proudly. He hopes the buzz created from this massive win will continue for quite some time to help the store.
“There’s great excitement, and everyone is coming to the store to check their tickets in case they think they’ve also won a fabulous prize,” he explained. Donal admitted that the winner of the lucky Irish Lotto ticket hasn’t come forward to claim their prize yet, but as far as he knows, they might want to take some time to process the win before claiming it. They said that they have no idea where the winner comes from, though, and they are just as curious as for the whole town.
This massive luck comes as a blessing because it is the first time that the family store has sold a winning ticket in 20 years. Donal hopes that the Irish Lotto winner is a local and regular customer. “News might break tomorrow on who won, but as it stands – we don’t know yet,” he commented. When lottery officials asked him whether a family member of his could be the winner, he insisted that it wasn’t.
