Irish Lotto Winner Picks up his Prize

The young man who scooped the €5,935,632 Irish Lotto jackpot on Wednesday, August 6, 2014, visited the National Lottery Ireland's offices in Dublin yesterday and picked up his check.

Ireland's latest lotto millionaire, who has opted to remain anonymous, was accompanied by his wife, his mother, and other close family members.

"It couldn’t have happened to a better lad," his mother said. "He deserves all the happiness in the world."

The lucky winner was so blown away his lotto success he said it felt like he was having 'and out of body experience.'

"I always said I'd win the Lotto one day," he beamed, "but I didn't really believe it would happen, and certainly not this soon—it's unbelievable."
