Identity of €6 Million Lotto Winner Still Unknown
The Irish town of Lahinch in west Clare has been buzzing with excitement and speculation since it was confirmed that the town is home to the winner of last weekend’s Lotto jackpot which was worth a massive €6,158,375.
The €4 Quick Pick ticket was bought last Friday at the town’s Kennedy’s Centra Foodmarket.
The shop owner, Robert Kennedy, has said that he has never had a National Lottery jackpot winner before, “When I heard first, I was shocked . . . We are all delighted for whoever won, but we have no idea who it was.”
Kennedy went on to say that, he has “a decent lotto trade here and had someone on the TV game show once but nothing major at all . . . We’ve never had any major winner. I think we had a five number winner, maybe twice”.
As a result the town is eagerly waiting for the winner’s identity to be revealed and Kennedy is wondering if it is one of his regular customers or just someone who happened to be passing through, as he said, “They could be on a plane to Boston or someplace else already.”
