A Kildare man who won €250,000 has collected his winnings.
Derek Delaney placed his bet in BoyleSports’ Newbridge shop on Saturday’s Lotto Plus 1 draw.
The €2 accumulator was on the five numbers 8, 9, 27, 32 and 45.
Defying odds of 125,000/1, all five numbers were drawn and resulted in the €250,002 windfall
He also placed a €1 bet on the four numbers 8, 9, 27 and 32 on the same draw, which returned an added bonus of €7,5001.
The two bets had a combined stake of just €3 and returned €257,503 in total.
