Lucky Offaly woman celebrates passing her driving test in the most amazing way

An Offaly woman has had a day she will never forget as she passed her driving test and then celebrated in the most amazing style.

The woman from Tullamore celebrated passing her driving test by purchasing a €5 All Cash Platinum scratch card at Fergus Byrne’s Service Station in Tullamore, Co. Offaly. Incredibly, when she scratched that All Cash Platinum scratch card, she claimed a cool €50,000  win. 

The lucky lady was among a large number of National Lottery players who got their weekend off to a flying start today after they claimed in excess of €320,000 in prizes from National Lottery headquarters in Dublin City.

Among the big winners were an exuberant Lotto syndicate from Johnson & Johnson in Cork who claimed a €74,632 Match 5+Bonus prize. While another Dublin man and his family claimed a massive €168,325 Lotto Match 5 + Bonus prize from 7th February.
