€100K Lotto luck for Cavan punter

The owner of the €100,000 winning ticket sold in Cavan as part of the annual Christmas Millionaire Raffle has collected his winnings, the National Lottery has confirmed.
The lucky local punter, who wishes to remain anonymous, is understood to have attended the National Lottery offices earlier this week.
Sold in the Topaz Service Station on the Dublin Road in Cavan on December 27 last, ticket number - 266,026 of 350,000 - was the fourth of four €100,000 winning tickets pulled during the New Year’s Eve draw.
The Cavan person was one of two lucky people who attended Lotto offices this week to claim their prizes. Two other Dublin-based winners collected prizes of €250,000 and €100,000 respectively.
It’s the latest major Lotto win to strike the county after two Killeshandra brothers turned a €2 sibling debt-repayment into a €50,000 windfall back in July last year.
The unusual scenario played out when Declan McManus paid pack €2 he owed to his brother Damien, which was then spent on a Lotto scratch card, the first winning €5.
Re-investing that sum, Damien bought an All Cash Platinum Scratch Card – from which he scooped the €50,000 top prize.
