A lot of people would never want to work a day in their life after hitting a €4.439.000 jackpot, but not one humble couple from Galway. They’re not planning any drastic changes after becoming lotto millionaires, and intend to keep on working once the heat dies down.
The anonymous pair matched the six main winning numbers 14, 24, 30, 38, 40 and 45 in the Irish Lotto draw on October 27th. The couple was on a Bank Holiday break with their family when they made a stop at Daybreak store in the village of Milltown. Buying lottery ticket while passing through a random town is one of their holiday traditions, and it led them to the €4.439.000 victory this time around.
Shortly after the draw took place, they heard about the lottery winner being created in Galway. They hoped their ticket will turn out to be the winning one, but nothing prepared them for the shock they experienced after checking their numbers. The couple described the moment they learnt about their victory as wild and emotional experience.
After the excitement of checking the ticket worn off, the fortunate couple started making plans for the future. They’ll use some of the money to pay off their mortgage and secure the future of their children. Despite having €4.439.000 on their disposal, they don’t intend to drastically change their lifestyle or leave their jobs.
They’ll use the money to help out their extended family and friends and those in need in their local community. The couple already made a list of people and organizations they want to assist, including several charities in their area.
