Leitrim farmer nearly forgot to check €50,000-winning scratch card!

A young farmer from Leitrim had a scratch card sitting in his car for four days before he scratched it and realised he had won €50,000!

27 year old Kevin Boyle, from Aghacashel, outside Carrick-on-Shannon, completely forgot he had bought the scratch card and it was still sitting in his glove box days later.

He bought the All Cash Platinum scratch card in the Gala store on Church Street, Drumshambo last Monday.

He made the journey to National Lottery HQ in Dublin to claim his prize today – a day that people from the country traditionally swamp the capital for the start of the Christmas shopping season.
