A young Donegal man who won €283,274 in the Lotto has admitted that he hasn't even told his parents yet.

The man, who is in his 20s, purchased the ticket in G & S Supermarket, Church Road in Carndonagh, Co. Donegal.

”I checked the numbers and my heart was beating out of my chest," he said.

"I stayed quiet thus far and once I had my cheque I was going to surprise the parents but now I am sitting here, I might just see how long I can keep my little secret”.

Meanwhile, the winner of the €4.4 million prize has not come forward yet.

Dermot Griffin, CEO of the National Lottery told the Irish Mirror that the winner might already know, but just wants to bide their time.

“They could be getting financial advice or letting it all sink in or they could have even gone on holiday straight away – all of which has happened before with past winners”.
