Bridget Murray, a social care worker from Cappoquin is €56,005 richer having won the TellyBingo Snowball top prize on August 2nd. 

“It’s just brilliant! I was watching the draw on TV and I almost gave myself a heart attack when my numbers started coming out of the drum one by one. I was left waiting on my final number which was 13 and when I saw it being called out, I was absolutely speechless,” she said.

The winning TellyBingo ticket was sold at An Post on Main Street in Cappoquin and Bridget can’t wait to plan how she’ll spend her winnings.

“There has been great excitement in Cappoquin at the moment and I have been inundated with well-wishers since the news of the win was announced locally. I haven’t decided what to do with my win just yet so I’ll take some time out before I decide on any spending plans,” she said.

She and her friend Miriam Budden were treated to a bubbly reception at the National Lottery HQ in Dublin when Bridget went to collect her winnings.
