A €11.2 million-winning Lotto ticket was sold to a Co Wicklow man who had decided to treat himself to a chicken fillet roll after receiving a €10 tip at work.

The winners, who wish to remain anonymous, picked up their cheque from National Lottery headquarters in Dublin today.

The ticket was sold at the the Spar Service Station on Monastery Road in Enniskerry, Co. Wicklow last month.

One of the winners explained that he only bought the lucky Quick Pick ticket on a whim.

"I was at work that morning and a happy customer gave me a €10 tip so I decided to pop into the Spar garage to get myself a chicken fillet roll for my lunch and with the change, I got myself a Lotto Quick Pick," he said.

"It was a simple act of kindness from a customer which led my family to a win of a lifetime. It's something I will always be grateful for," he added.

The man added that the family are going to stay grounded after their windfall, with a new dishwasher and oven top of the shopping list.

He also said that they only realised they were in the money two days after the draw on Wednesday 21 August.

"I was sitting in the car eating my lunch on the following Friday while I was reading the paper and I overheard a conversation on the radio about the Lotto win in Enniskerry.

"My heart absolutely jumped out of my chest because I knew that's where I bought my ticket. I pulled my ticket out of my wallet and checked the numbers on the paper," he said.

He added that he was "absolutely speechless" when he realised the piece of paper he was holding was worth €11.2m.

"I just sat there in silence. It was such a magical feeling, knowing that you've just won a life-changing sum of money as easy as that,"
