Irish Daily Mirror - - NEWS - BY JOHN PA­TRICK KIERANS

IRE­LAND’S lat­est Lotto win­ner has re­vealed pos­i­tive think­ing helped him claim a €2.4million jack­pot. The man in his 40s won the prize af­ter buy­ing a Lotto Quick Pick ticket at the Ap­ple­green Round Tower Ser­vice Sta­tion in Cor­duff, Lusk, Co Dublin. The win­ning num­bers for Wed­nes­day’s draw were 7, 19, 20, 32, 34, and 43 with the bonus 45. He said: “I can hon­estly say I have vi­su­alised this mo­ment for 15 years. “I am in shock and strug­gling to process all of this but I just knew sooner or later that I would win.” The new mil­lion­aire re­vealed he is a huge fan of best­selling book The Se­cret by Rhonda Byrne, and ex­plained how it helped him get into a pos­i­tive mind­set. He said: “I lis­ten to the au­dio­book ev­ery morn­ing. I be­lieve if you can imag­ine some­thing you can do in your head then you can do it in real life. “Pos­i­tive think­ing is part of my phi­los­o­phy in life – even in my out­look in play­ing the Lotto. “I knew ev­ery time I won a small amount, or even won noth­ing, I was get­ting closer to the mo­ment when I would win.” Na­tional Lot­tery chief, Der­mot Grif­fin added: “This could well be the most pos­i­tive per­son we’ve ever had sit­ting in the win­ner’s room.”
