'I’d regularly get the email from the National Lottery stating that they have some good news about my ticket...,' said the Carlow winner.

Carlow woman scoops €250,000 Lotto prize after "getting used to logging and finding out that I had won a tenner and other small amounts".

The lucky Lotto Plus 2 top prize winner was an ecstatic lady from Carlow who won the €250,000 prize with a ticket she bought on the National Lottery App on Wednesday, August 29. 

“Usually, I would win a few bob here and there playing the Lotto online so I’d regularly get the email from the National Lottery stating that they have some good news about my ticket.

"I was getting used to logging and finding out that I had won a tenner and other small amounts like that so I wasn’t overly excited about my latest email!

"When I eventually logged in to my account, my jaw nearly hit the floor when I saw that there was a €250,000 prize waiting for me,” said the Carlow native.
