LUCKY Tullamore woman May Lowry was on top of the world after she collected a cheque for €60,010 in National Lottery offices last Friday morning.

May won the top snowball prize on the National Lottery’s TellyBingo game. The lucky ticket was bought in Dolan’s, Clara Road, Tullamore.

May, who has played TellyBingo since it started, got the shock of her life when she realised she had won the snowball prize. “I was watching the draw live on TV , I was shouting at the telly hoping that number 57 would come out as it was the only number I was missing for the snowball. When it came out I was in shock, I couldn’t believe it.”

“I always knew that one day I would be here in National Lottery offices colleting a prize,” smiled delighted May.

She intends to keep playing TellyBingo in the future and hopes that she will one day return to National Lottery offices to collect another prize. May plans to pay some bills and help out her nine children with the win.
