The Lotto Jackpot winner on Saturday night revealed that the first thing he did when he realized he had won a cash bonus was a walk.
A player from Galway said: "My mind was in a hurry ride. I think I walked until it was lit."
He picked up a Mammoth pile over the weekend and collected his winnings today while the Lotto Plus 1 player, who won $ 1,000,000 in Offaly over the weekend, also picked up their prize.
The Meatha Family Union – who won massive € 6,197,310 on May 18 after having bought a Trogir map, Co Louth – also took home his Lotto award today.
Happy Galwayan, while today received his check in the National Lottery headquarters, said he can not believe his eyes when he finds out that there are figures that change his life at 1.30 on Sunday morning.
The man bought his Lotto card at Joyce's supermarket at Doughiska Shopping Center, Doughiska Road, Galway.
He said: "I carried my card on the Internet quite late that evening and I immediately jumped out one of the lines on the map.
"I knew I had a few of those numbers and quickly realized that I was comparing all the numbers!"
"I could not believe it. I checked the map again and again only to be sure, but it was an incredible feeling.
"I could not sleep after I left and walked our city several times.
& # 39; OVERDRIVE & # 39;
"My mind was at too great a speed. I think I walked until the light came out and I waited for the rest of my family to get out of bed so I could tell them good news."
In the National Lottery office today was also a small family union Co Meath who on May 18 won a huge € 6,197,310.
The family – whose ticket was purchased at Tesco Extra on Donore Road in Drogheda – waited three weeks before arriving.
And the family family found she had reported the rest of her family when she told her husband: "How would you like to marry a multi-millionaire?"
She said that they were left speechless and that they did not talk the rest of the day.
She recalled: "I heard on the news that the Lotto got and the map was sold to Tesco Extra.
"I felt an adrenaline and checked the map and saw the numbers matching. I can not believe it."
"I just told my wife -" How would you like to marry multi-millionaires? "
"He thought I was joking until I showed him the map. He removed the National Lottery application on his phone and scanned the map only to be sure and said the card was a winner.
& # 39; SPEECHLESS & # 39;
"We were without words. We never said one word to each other until the end of the day. We could not even figure out what's going on."
Speaking about what the family did with the golden card, one member said: "I put the card in a zip lock bag and sold it inside the cabinet and stayed there for almost three weeks.
"I would look at him once a day before I went to work that morning to make sure it was real."
The Meath family will now live their lives as they adapt to life as millionaires, but they say they will use unexpectedly to take care of the rest of their family.
They said: "We have time reserved later in the summer, so we will continue to normal then. Perhaps when the holidays come, we may know what we will spend money on.
"Once we sign up to our bank accounts we know that money is not going anywhere, while we enjoy it, we will also make sure that our family is comfortable for the future."
Finally, the Lotto Plus 1 winners of € 1million from the weekend also won their winnings.
The Midland family's union said victory for them was "a dream come true".
One family member said: "I can not believe it. I'm shaking.
"Since I spent a ticket on Saturday night, we all lived a dream. It's really a dream come true.
"We are just ordinary working people – this is the last thing I expected that life would throw us away!"
