A local Leitrim married couple collected their €250k Lotto win from Lotto Head Quarters last Friday, October 16.

The couple who wish to remain anonymous were over the moon with their win. The lucky pair have been doing the Lotto every week for the past 15 years.

The golden ticket was sold at McGowan’s Spar Kinlough on Saturday, October 10. It was a €10 quick pick from Lotto +2.

Noel told the Leitrim Observer this week that he was “delighted” to have sold the lucky ticket.

Noel and Martina wished the couple well with their winnings. McGowans is known as a lucky place to buy the Lotto after having two previous jackpot tickets sold there.

It took the winners almost a week to claim their Lotto prize which sparked much speculation in North Leitrim and South Donegal.
