The town of Carndonagh was abuzz with speculation yesterday that a local person scooped 99,000 euro after betting 3 euro on the outcome of Friday’s Euromillion draw.

It’s understood the bet was placed at Ladbroke’s on the Diamond, although no one from Ladbroke’s was available to confirm this.

One local resident told the Donegal Democrat/People’s Press: “Everybody is talking about it but no one can say for sure who it is. We’re pretty sure it’s a local man, but not too sure exactly how local.

“People are saying ‘he’s not available to speak to anyone’ and I don’t know what that means. But one thing I’m sure of is that everyone here will be keeping a close eye on everyone else over the coming days to see if anyone splashes out on a luxury or buys a few bottles of bubbly on the sly!”
