Happy Father’s Day for Tallaght grandad as he wins big on scratch card

by Padraig Conlon

A grandad from Tallaght had a Father’s Day to remember after he won a massive €200,000 on a scratch card.

The lucky local man, who wants to stay anonymous, scooped the awesome prize after his daughter put a €10 All Cash Spectacular scratch ticket in his Father’s Day card.

The delighted man said: “It’s not a bad gift to get for Father’s Day is it? It was already a wonderful day.

“I was surrounded by my adult children and all of my grandkids so I really couldn’t have been happier.”

“Little did we know what would come next! I opened my Father’s Day cards and a couple of them had a scratch card in them so I eventually scratched them and my jaw nearly hit the floor when the €200,000 appeared on it.

“I was absolutely stunned into silence and everybody in the house started asking me if I was ok.

“As soon as they realised what we had won, there was absolute pandemonium.

“It’ll be something that I will treasure forever.”

The man and his wife picked up his prize at National Lottery winners’ room this week in complete disbelief.

When asked what he was planning on spending the money on, the lucky winner said his family come first.

“We’ve put a lot of thought about what we want to do with the money and we’ve decided to split the prize between the family,” he said.
