Donegal man collects €250,000 lottery winnings

The winner of a 250 thousand euro national lottery ticket sold in Bundoran has collected their prize.

The lucky Donegal native, who wishes to remain anonymous, claimed his cheque at National Lottery headquarters in Dublin earlier today.

He says he will be using the winnings from the New Years Eve millionaire raffle to pay off his mortgage.

The winning ticket was sold on the day of the draw at the American House shop in Bundoran, Co. Donegal, just hours before the draw deadline.
