Talking about how she might spend her winnings, she said: “We might look at purchasing a new car and doing some repairs on our house.”
“After that I will treat the family and possibly go on a lovely holiday.”
The winner wishes to keep the win private. The lucky winning ticket number is 109 299 and it was bought in JR Porter Ltd, Wilton Shopping Centre, Cork on Thursday 19 December 2013.
