A Longford farmer - who won €238,673 in a Lotto draw - was mulling over what he was going to purchase with his newfound Lotto windfall.
This lucky winner was in fine form as he sat alongside family members at National Lottery HQ in Dublin collecting his prize after matching five numbers and the bonus on Saturday, June 8th.
Bull and tractor
When asked about his spending plans with his winnings he joked: “Before this, I had been considering getting a new tractor and I was also thinking of getting a bull."
"I suppose now I can take my time to make up my mind, and sure I may decide to get both!”
He bought his ticket at O’Brien’s Corner House, Lanesboro Road in Co. Longford.
€4 million jackpot
The Longford farmer was one number short of sharing the €4 million jackpot on the night, which was won by a player in Galway.
He said: “I am absolutely delighted to have won this prize. It will surely be a big bit of comfort for me."
"Farming, of course, is a tough industry so it’s nice to have the extra money. My brother sent me a message that he heard that there had been a win in Lanesboro."
"I went to my local shop, checked the ticket and it said I was a winner.”
