When one Kerry couple retired a few years ago, they never thought they’d be able to travel the world in style without worrying about the money. That’s exactly what they intend to do after scooping a €150.000 Irish Lotto prize. They’ll use this impressive amount of money to go on “holidays of a lifetime”.
The couple won this amazing windfall after missing the jackpot by one of the main numbers on June 20th. They purchased the ticket at the Maxol Service Station in Rathass and watched the draw that very night. The couple noticed they guessed a few numbers correctly straight away, but they had to make sure by checking the ticket.
Two Kerry retirees knew they won something, but didn’t know exactly how much. The lucky husband got on the computer and the message popped up, informing the couple they just became €150.000 richer! His wife described their victory as “was a huge shock to the system” and said it was magical.
Despite the fact they hadn’t won millions, the couple now has just enough money at their disposal to enjoy their retirement to the fullest. Since they have a very close family, husband and wife will share some of the money with them and the rest will go towards travelling the world. They can’t wait to start planning their future trips without having to worry about “scrimping and saving” every penny.
The couple stated they already have a bucket list filled with dozens of amazing holiday destinations they want to visit. The €150.000 lotto win will allow them to go to all the places they want to see and have a holiday they’ll never forget.
