The man purchased his winning ticket at Ross’s Centra store in the centre of Watergrasshill in north-east Cork. 

“While I won’t let it change my life, it will certainly allow me to make life an awful lot easier for my family, that is for sure,” he said.

“I have already arranged to pay off my mortgage and other bills and the rest of the money will be shared among other family members. It will make a huge difference to our lives and we’ll make sure that it will benefit us all for many years to come.”
