Lotto players in Portmagee are being urged to check their tickets after a player matched five numbers and the bonus ball in Saturday night’s draw to win a whopping €156,493.

The winning ticket was purchased on the day of the draw at Deo’s Post Office in O’Connell’s Foodstore..

The winning numbers in Saturday’s (February 26) draw were: 01, 08, 16, 33, 36, 39 and the bonus was 05.

Mark Conway who runs the store with his wife Emir spoke of his sheer delight at hearing the news of the big Lotto win in his store.

“It’s just fantastic news for our community. The entire area has suffered from continuous storms for the past few weeks, so this is a great bit of news to give us all a lift down here in Portmagee and Valentia Island. Given the time of year and of course the recent weather conditions, we haven’t seen too many tourists passing through, so we are hopeful that the winner is local," he said.

“Great news like this travels fast. I have no doubt that it will give us all an incredible boost and a reason to celebrate some much needed good news for a change.” 

The Kerry winner is advised to sign the back of their ticket and to keep it safe. The winner should contact the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email claims@lottery.ie and arrangements will be made for them to claim their Lotto Match 5+ Bonus prize.

Those taking part left Ross Castle and were treated to a phenomenal boat ride in the expert hands of Diarmuid ‘Dux’ O’Donoghue of Gap of Dunloe Traditional Boat Tours. The O’Donoghue family entertained the entire group with a range of fascinating stories outlining the history of the lakes of Killarney and Killarney National Park.

The group set out from Lord Brandon’s Cottage and walked the 11K through the iconic Gap of Dunloe, with two AADI families and their dogs taking part in the full walk. This was followed by a well-deserved meal and some rest and relaxation at Kate Kearney’s Cottage. Flemings Taxi’s Killarney brought the group back to Ross Castle, Killarney upon completion of the event.
