An online Lotto player in Kerry had a Saturday night to remember after matching five numbers and the bonus to win an incredible €161,300 after purchasing their ticket online at www.lottery.ie.

The National Lottery has confirmed that a notification to the user’s online account and a separate email has now been sent to the lucky Kerry ticket holder. The online winner should make contact with the prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email claims@lottery.ie and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prize.

The winning numbers for Saturday’s (April 23) Lotto draw were: 06, 15, 18, 35, 43, 47 and the bonus was 26.

Saturday night’s Lotto draw marked the third Lotto Plus Raffle promotion of the year which saw 94 players get a massive boost to their winnings as the National Lottery topped up the Lotto Plus Raffle with an additional €1 million. The Lotto Plus Raffle typically sees between 80 and 120 winners of €500 in every draw. There were 94 Raffle winners which meant the boosted prize fund divided out to a prize of €11,138 for each Raffle winner.

The winning Lotto Plus Raffle number was: 3063

The Lotto Plus Raffle winners are advised to sign the back of their tickets and check www.lottery.ie for details of their nearest An Post Prize Claim Centre where prizes up to €14,999 can be claimed. Alternatively, they can contact the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email claims@lottery.ie. Online players will receive details of the process for claiming their prizes.

A National Lottery spokesperson said Saturday night’s draw proved to be a big one for Lotto players all over the country.

"An online player in Kerry became the biggest winner of the night after matching five numbers and the bonus to win an incredible €161,300 while 94 players shared a boosted prize fund due to the additional €1 million in the Lotto Plus Raffle prize fund. Instead of receiving €500 as is the typical prize for the Lotto Plus Raffle, each of these winners will now go on to claim €11,138 each.

“While there was no winner of Saturday night’s €6,675,267 jackpot, 102,000 players nationwide won prizes across the Lotto and Lotto Plus draws. Wednesday’s Lotto jackpot is now set to roll towards an estimated €7 million.”

Next Friday (June 21), members of the public are invited to attend the Mass taking place at 6.30pm.

Now in its 30th year, the Mass was originally an idea by Geoffrey O’Donoghue who sadly died four years after it began.

“There was an Augustinian Monastery on Innisfallen Island and the people, including priests and monks and they say Brian Boro, went out there to study. The lake, Lough Lein is called ‘The Lake of Learning’,” said his wife Mary who carries on the tradition in his memory.

“My husband Geoffrey was a descendent of the O’Donoghues and he wanted to have Mass on the island. The O’Donoghues built Ross Castle and owned the lands and the lake surrounding it which was later donated by John McShane to the people of Killarney. He [Geoffrey] asked one of the friars and one day he got a call from the OPW that there would be a plaque unveiled to John McShane and they asked if the Mass could coincide with it. It was attended by Sr Pauline, John McShane’s daughter.”

She added that all the public are welcome to attend. Boats, which will have a nominal fee to cover their costs, will be carrying passengers out from 4pm onwards.

A photograph of one of Killarney’s hidden beauty spots was deemed the winner of Killarney Camera Club’s most recent competition.

Th standard was high throughout all categories but in the Novice category, Iryna Halaieva’s photograph of O’Sullivan’s Cascade was deemed the winner.

“A waterfall is my favourite waterbody and long exposure is my favourite photographic technique,” she said. “I do my best to have as many waterfalls as possible in my photo collection. I heard a lot about O’Sullivan’s Cascade and wanted to visit that hidden gem of Kerry. So, shortly before our club competition I went with a friend to Tomies Wood to photograph it. It was a dream come true for me.”
