Kevin Doherty, owner of the Centra store in the town described the win as potentially a ‘life-changing’ event for the winning ticket holder after storms and floods devastated the area in recent weeks.
He said: “It’s quite an emotional day for us in the store, we’re absolutely over the moon for our customers. Everybody in this part of the country has had to endure a difficult couple of weeks following the recent storms and flooding so this is the good news we all needed this week! Can you imagine what €250,000 would mean to a local family who may be rebuilding their lives with the damage caused by the storms – there’s no doubt about it, it’s absolutely life-changing.”
