A Wexford based carer has expressed his delight at winning €500,000 in the Euromillions.
Collecting his cheque at the National Lottery today, the man – who has asked to remain anonymous – described the win as “life changing” for his family who have been surviving on his carer’s allowance.
He said: “This is a life changing, once in a lifetime win for my family. I am a full-time carer for members of my family and we were living from week to week on my carer’s allowance.”
“€500,000 will make a huge difference to our lives and it will take the everyday pressures of making ends meet away for a long time.”
“I have worked hard all of my life to take care of my family and those around me. This money will go a long to make sure that we are all secure for many years to come.”
Meanwhile, a County Clare man scooped almost €200,000 in Friday’s Euromillions draw.
He collected his winnings with two friends. All three wore emoji masks as they posed for celebratory photos.
