A family from Donegal has collected a cheque for €250,000 after winning the top prize in the Lotto Plus draw on Saturday, October 22.
The winning mother revealed that she had her children to thank for getting her to check her ticket a week after the win was announced.
She said: "Everybody has been talking about the big win in the area but I genuinely never thought it would be us.
"The kids were constantly on the phones and their computers and they would tell me that there is still no news on the winner coming forward.
"They were absolutely convinced that it was us. They pestered me to find the ticket and to check it."
