A Bray man who wishes to remain anonymous after scooping half a million in the Euro millions says he was lucky twice.

The winning ticket was a €12 Quick Pick bought from the Centra Store in the Glenageary Shopping Centre, two weeks ago.

Speaking as he collected his winnings yesterday he said “I sat down checked my tickets and was about to tear them up, when it dawned on my I had not checked the plus numbers,”I couldn’t believe it when I realised I had won €500,000 ”

The man plans to spend his winnings on home renovations before whisking his wife off on a sunshine cruise.
