The €257,723 Lotto winner - who purchased their ticket in Carson’s Daybreak store in Beaufort - has made contact with National Lottery HQ.

The lucky ticket holder - who came within just one number of the €16,419,005 jackpot on offer in Saturday night’s draw - matched five numbers and the bonus and arrangements are now being made for them to claim their prize.

Meanwhile Lotto fever continues to grip the country as tomorrow night’s Lotto jackpot heads towards an estimated €17 million. Since the Lotto game launched in 1988, only one jackpot in excess of €17 million has ever been won which means that a single winner of Wednesday’s Lotto jackpot could become Ireland’s second largest jackpot winner in the history of the game.

So far this year, there have been five Lotto jackpot wins by players in Limerick, Kilkenny, Westmeath, Cork and Galway. A potential jackpot winner tomorrow night would take the title of Ireland’s newest multi-millionaire as well as sixth Lotto jackpot winner of 2021.

ROLLOVER

The current Lotto jackpot has been rolling for over three months since Wednesday June 9, and due to the high level of public interest, the National Lottery has urged players to avoid queues where possible and to purchase their tickets in store, online at www.lottery.ie or through the National Lottery App ahead of the cut off time of 7.45pm tomorrow evening (Wednesday).

“Tomorrow’s draw could prove truly life-changing for one lucky Lotto player," a National Lottery spokesperson said.

"A single winner could find themselves at number two on the list of all time highest Lotto jackpot winners in Ireland which we know is a highly coveted title. As the jackpot rolls, ticket sales are continuing to grow and we are appealing to players to follow public health guidelines and to purchase tickets early either in store, in App or at www.lottery.ie ahead of the deadline for sales at 7.45pm tomorrow evening.

Will tomorrow night’s draw mark the end of the extraordinary jackpot roll which has lasted for the majority of the summer? Only time will tell!”

The question of pedestrianisation in the town centre has divided Killarney for years but a survey by the Killarney Advertiser this week shows the town slightly more in favour of it.

A total of 37.14 percent of respondents want the pedestrianisation of Plunkett St to remain as it is – closed to traffic on a permanent basis while 24.76 want it to go back to its pre-pandemic arrangement where the street was only closed to vehicular traffic between 7pm and 7am each night.

An additional 34.29 percent want to see an increase in pedestrianisation in town centre by extending the Main St arrangement that was in place during the summer. In that period the town’s main thoroughfare was closed to traffic, day and night, during the weekend.

Only 20 percent of the respondents want to abolish pedestrianisation altogether, but that is still a significant number ensuring that this debate will linger on for a long time yet.

A local group hosting a life-saving information day tomorrow (Saturday) are to receive huge exposure on national TV after a crew came down to interview them about their campaign.

Members of Killarney Cardiac Response Unit (KCRU) – who are planning a ‘Restart a Heart Day’ to raise awareness about life-saving techniques – invited journalist Paul Byrne and Virgin Media TV crew to town this week.

It’s hoped their campaign will be broadcast tonight (Friday) or tomorrow (Saturday).

The KCRU event takes place tomorrow in ANAM Arts and Cultural Centre between 10.30am and 4pm as part of the European Restart a Heart Day. It’ll include CPR demos, public information, an art display, a video launch w️ith many prizes to be won.

“The crew interviewed Community Responder Helen Duggan who explained the events taking place on Saturday,” Kevin O’Leary from KCRU told the Killarney Advertiser.

“European Restart a Heart Day was founded with the support of the European parliament and takes place on October 16 every year. We’re spreading the message that 20 minutes of your time could make all the difference saving a life.”

In 2021, the focus of the event is on survivors with the hashtag #CPRSavedMyLife.

“With this campaign we want to create awareness that everyone can learn CPR and facilitate BLS courses in schools and public locations.”

He said they hope that Kerry TDs Danny Healy-Rae, Brendan Griffin and Minister for Education Norma Foley will be in attendance throughout the day, and the public are invited to attend.

“Find out how simple actions can save lives. Prizes include a three day First Aid course valued at €300, two First Aid kits, and a voucher for a local business.”
