Kerry Lotto player scoops €235,196 prize

Published

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.”

Well-known Dalton’s Avenue woman Eileen Switzer has been named as the Honorary President of Killarney Valley Athletic Club in recognition of her work as a volunteer.

The club held its annual awards night on Friday night last.

As well as presenting awards to club members in recognition of their achievements at home and abroad they decided to honour Mrs Switzer for her “lifetime of volunteering to the community, to sport, to youth and for championing diversity and inclusion”.

“Eileen has been an advocate, a coach and an administrator in the sport of athletics for over 60 years in the town of Killarney, Kerry and beyond,” said club chair Jerry Griffin.

Eileen and her husband Frank have dedicated their lives to the community games and athletics in the greater Killarney area.

“I enjoy, but I don’t like, all the limelight,” she told the Killarney Advertiser.

“I like to watch newcomers as they come up through the ranks, many of the Community Games people of the past are now running the committee.”

In a life time dedicated to volunteerism in Killarney Eileen has helped sports like golf, pitch and putt and badminton grow.  She was also heavily involved in the local Irish dancing scene and remains a great supporter of Kerry Parents and Friends.
