A WORKING Cork mother bought her €250,000 winning lottery ticket while on a spa trip in Kerry.
The winning Lotto Plus 2 winning ticket was purchased on Saturday October 12 at Garvey's Supervalu in Tralee.
The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, admitted that while her family have been quietly celebrating for the past week, the reality of the size of their Lotto prize has yet to sink in but her family haven’t even thought about splashing the cash just yet.
“It’s been a madhouse for the past week and I don’t think that we’ve really come to terms with it yet. We are a hard-working family so we won’t be getting carried away with it. What this win does mean is that it puts us into a very good position to provide the very best for our family with education costs and whatnot.
"We won’t rush into any mad spending until we get a proper plan in place for everybody,” she added.
Tuesday night’s EuroMillions jackpot is an estimated €50 million.
