There were emotional scenes in the National Lottery as a married Dublin couple collected a prize of €1m.

They scooped the Daily Million jackpot on Friday May 26th.

The winning Daily Million Quick Pick ticket for the draw was purchased at the Londis Shop on Westmoreland Street in Dublin city on the day of the draw.

The husband and wife, who wish to keep their win private, discussed how their new found fortune would impact their future.

"We are a hard working couple and we work every hour we can to give the best to our young family.

"This win won't change our work ethic but it will make a huge difference.

"We are renting a house in Dublin at the moment and given the current housing prices, we probably would never have been in a position to buy."

"The past two weeks has been an amazing experience, knowing that our lives are going to change for the better.

"This is a turning point for us all and we will make the most of our €1m prize.

"The money will be spent on a new family home which we can finally call our own and we will also set up a family business to make sure that our future is secure for many years to come," they added.

Also through the doors at National Lottery offices were an ecstatic couple from Wexford, who collected their TellyBingo Snowball prize of €50,010 from Friday June 2nd.

The lucky couple purchased their winning ticket at the Knockavilla Filling Station in New Ross.
