Longford’s County Mayor, Cllr Séan Farrell (FG) afforded himself the opportunity to extend best wishes to the county’s newest millionaires, just prior to the monthly meeting of local area representatives at council chambers last Wednesday evening.
Ger and Ann Hand from Newtowncashel collected their €1.2m jackpot at Lotto headquarters in Dublin last week.
“I want to congratulate Ger and Ann Hand on their fantastic Lotto win,” Cllr Farrell added. “It’s said there is money in Newtowncashel, and now there most certainly is. The money couldn’t have gone to a more decenter family, and I wish them all the very best with their winnings.”
