Inishowen’s luckiest grandmother was beaming from ear to ear as she and her family collected her €2.6 million Lotto Jackpot winnings at Lotto HQ in Dublin yesterday.

Kathleen, aged 77, who is from Redcastle, became the country’s newest millionaire on Saturday evening when a €4 euro Quick Pick ticket she had bought in Farren’s Newsagents earlier that day proved be the winning numbers in the Lotto draw.

However, despite her big win, Kathleen insists it will not change her life, and after celebrating with her family on Sunday afternoon, she quickly put on her coat and went off to bingo.

“I didn’t win anything last night though,” laughed Kathleen.
