Following confirmation of the draw results, celebrations are now underway in Ballina and the shop owner Jean Connor has stated her disbelief at the huge win:
“I can’t believe it. I didn’t have my phone with me earlier and when I finally looked at it, I had a load of missed calls from the National Lottery – I had no idea what was going on!
As a shopkeeper, especially in a lovely town like Ballina, it is the best news that you can get – to be told that one of your customers in a big lottery winner.
We’ll enjoy some sensible celebrations today in the store and whoever the winner is, I hope that it changes their life for the better,” she said.
