The Bere Island, a small island of 180 residents on the southwestern tip of the Republic of Ireland, is rejoicing over its first-ever massive €500,000 Lottery win, although no one knows the winner.
As the news hit the island, everyone got excited, but no one knows who has won. Mary Murphy of Lawrence Cove Post Office who sold the winning ticket is also overjoyed at the news.
BBC Radio Ulster quoted her-
“I can’t believe it, it is amazing. Everyone has been ringing me now; the phones are going mad.”
This is the first time someone has hit this much amount of jackpot in the island. No one has ever won more than €20. It seems a huge news to celebrate for the poor people!
Although Ms Murphy had sold a couple of lottery tickets to the people from outside the island, she believes the winner to be local.
P.S. – It is huge news for the people out there!
