A labor union of DUBLIN will celebrate its € 1 million victory of EuroMillions “correctly” tonight after an “incredible week”.
The nine Blackrock colleagues won € 1,005,000 in the Ireland EuroMillions Millionaire draw on Friday night.
The group, which wishes to remain anonymous, will each receive € 111,666, and collected their prize at Lotto HQ today.
The head of the lucky union said: “It has been an incredible week and it has certainly facilitated the work knowing that we would raise a million euros on Friday!
“We have been absolutely flooded with supporters at work and in the community, so we will go out to celebrate tonight correctly before officially dividing the million euros between us.”
The group revealed how they finally realized their great victory after chatting in their WhatsApp group.
The union boss added: “We have a WhatsApp group among the lottery union at work and it certainly went crazy on Saturday night.
“When I checked the ticket in my application, a message appeared telling me to contact the National Lottery, so I knew we had won something but I wasn’t exactly sure how much.
“When I sent the message to the group, their research streak came to light and in a short time, we knew we had won the € 1 million prize, it was so surreal to see all these messages very happy.” “
The Quick Pick winning ticket was sold at the Centra store on Main Street in Blackrock on draw day.
