Kerry Lotto player scoops €235,196 prize

Published

on

The Lotto jackpot came close to being hit twice this week as a Castleisland player was just one number short of €2 million prize! Lotto players in Castleisland are being asked to check their Lotto tickets for Saturday night’s €2 million draw after one lucky player won the Lotto Match 5 + Bonus prize of €235,196. The winner matched five numbers and the bonus ball, meaning they were one number short of winning the €2 million jackpot on offer.

The lucky player picked their own numbers on their Normal Play ticket which they purchased at Garvey’s store on Church Street.

The winning numbers are: 03, 08, 10, 20, 43, 44 and the bonus was 40.

It has been an incredible week for some lucky National Lottery players, especially from Cork after last Wednesday’s €10,780,193 was won in Mount Oval Village, just outside Cork City. The National Lottery has confirmed that it is still waiting to hear from this lucky winner and has reminded every player to check their tickets to ensure that they do not miss out on these wonderful prizes.

“It has been a life-changing week for some of our lucky winners,” a National Lottery spokesperson said. “This includes last Wednesday’s €10.7 million Lotto jackpot win and of course the big Lotto win in Kerry which is worth nearly a quarter of a million Euro to one lucky player. There was also another big winner in Wexford who scooped Friday night’s EuroMillions Plus top prize of €500,000. If you are one of these big winners, we ask that that you sign the back of the ticket and contact our prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email claims@lottery.ie, and we will make arrangements for you to claim your prize.”

Killarney native Patrick O’Sullivan Greene will launch his second book in the Great Southern Killarney on December 2.

O’Sullivan Greene explains Éamon de Valera’s mission to gain recognition for the newly formed Irish republic in New York in 1919 in his latest book ‘Revolution at the Waldorf: America and the Irish War of Independence’.

Without American recognition and funding the young Irish Government was sure to fail against the might of the British Empire and the book tells the story of how de Valera and Ireland-based Michael Collins – much to the defiance of the British authorities at Dublin Castle – got the new State off the ground.

O’Sullivan grew up in New Street and is now based in Beaufort after a career in finance took him all over the world including Dublin, London, New York and France.

“Killarney is the natural place for me to launch the book,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.

“There will be an interesting mix of people there.”

O’Sullivan Greene published his first book, ‘Crowdfunding the Revolution: The First Dáil Loan and the Battle for Irish Independence’, in 2020.

One community group have shown that they care deeply for others by crafting handmade blankets for charity.

Using their range of skills and some colourful wool, members of Kilcummin Community Care worked together to make blankets for service users on the Kerry Cork Cancer Health Link Bus.

“Each blanket is assigned as a personal gift to the clients using the Cancer Link Bus and is kept by them,” Kate Fleming, Chairperson of Kilcummin Community Care, said.

The knitting of the squares to make the blankets began at a gathering in the Rose Hotel in 2018. It was a gathering of different volunteer groups.

The Kerry Cork Cancer Health Link Bus were requesting knitted squares to make blankets for the clients who were using their facilities, she explained.

“Kilcummin Community Care were knitting at the time, so it was decided to help out this worthy cause. We received donations of wool from people in the parish and surrounding areas. Kilcummin ICA also got involved in the efforts.”

During the two years of COVID-19, members of both organisations continued to knit and are still knitting to the present day.
