A Dublin woman who won €500,000 on the DailyMillion Plus draw last Saturday is using the money to help the homeless.
The woman bought her ticket at the Newstime shop in Palmerstown on the day of the draw.
She said: "This win is for all of those people in Dublin who struggle to find a bed at night."
She added: "To celebrate my win, I will spend today visiting as many homeless people as I can to assist them financially. In the long term, I will commit to a plan to help as many as I can."
The woman who wants to remain anonymous explained how she found out she had won: "I went absolutely mad! I phoned all of my friends and we were all in the Shelbourne Hotel by 10pm sipping champagne."
