Gala customer wins big in Galway

A lucky Gala customer from Galway scooped the €7.3 million Lotto jackpot from Saturday 15 August.
The winning ticket was sold at Rogan’s Gala store, in the coastal town of Clifden. The family run Gala store was taken over by owner Joe Rogan last year.
Rogan spoke of his delight that one of his customers had become a multi-millionaire following a visit to his store: “We heard that the big win was in Galway over the weekend and until late last night, I had absolutely no idea that it was our store that had sole the winning ticket. Honestly, I am in a state of shock and I’m not even the one who has won the €7.3 million jackpot! This is a very sweet win for us. I only took over the running of the store in the past year so it is an unbelievable bonus for us that we should have a Lotto jackpot winner in our first year in business,” he said.
“Whoever the winner is, this amount of money will be absolutely life-changing for them and we wish them all the very best with their new-found fortune,” Rogan continued. “You have no idea what a big Lotto win brings to the town, there is a massive sense of excitement and delight for the winner and of course a little bit of speculation as to who the winner is, which is to be expected! Many of our day to day customers are from the local community but given the time of year, there is quite a passing trade with tourists visiting from every part of the country, so it’s anybody’s guess who it could be.”
