ONE Co Donegal family is celebrating after winning a €50,000 Christmas scratchcard fortune.
The Letterkenny winner was congratulated on TV’s Winning Streak programme by presenters Sinead Kennedy and Marty Whelan.
The winning ticket was bought in the town.
Sinead told the nation of the windfall when explaining to viewers how they can enter Winning Streak by buying a scratch card.
“Even if you don’t get picked you can still be very lucky like one player in Letterkenny who won €50,000 yesterday – happy Christmas to you,” said the TV host.
The festive windfall came as lotto fever gripped the county after two massive Christmas jackpots are on offer this week.
The EuroMillions jackpot on Christmas Eve is heading towards €75Million.
And the midweek lotto jackpot will be more than €6Million.
That draw will take place on Thursday – St Stephen’s Day instead of Christmas Day.
