The winner of the lottery arrives in style to receive the prize of € 1 million


A 23-year-old farmer collected his € 1 million National Lottery prize.

Odhrán Doherty, of Raphoe in Co Donegal, arrived at the National Lottery headquarters in Dublin in style, traveling in a white Hummer stretch with family and friends.

He was lucky in Saturday night's Lotto Plus 1 draw after his father Liam bought the ticket for him.

The father and son are very close and work together on the family farm.

It is understood that Odhrán wants to spend some of the money on a new tractor.

Speaking before he arrived, Odhrán's sister, Lana Doherty, told reporters that the family was in shock but very excited.

She described the 23-year-old as "down to earth" and "very relaxed," and he will be well supported after that victory.

Ms Doherty said there will be a party in Wexford tonight, where she lives with her family.
