Tipperary mum-of-seven scoops €30,005 TellyBingo prize

Tipperary woman Marianne Cunningham had that Friday feeling at National Lottery headquarters in Dublin today.

The lucky mum collected a cheque for a whopping €30,005 which she won from the TellyBingo Snowball prize on Friday, February 2.

The winning ticket was purchased at the Maxol/Mace service station on Fr. Matthew St in Tipperary Town.

Discussing her plans for her €30,005 windfall, the Tipperary woman said all of her prizemoney would be spent on her children.

"I have seven children between the ages of 7-19 so I’ll have no shortage of spending tips," Marianne said.

Marianne Cunningham from Golden in Co. Tipperary collects a €30,005 TellyBingo prize from National Lottery headquarters in Dublin 1.

"I will have three of the children in college next September so this lovely prize will come in very handy indeed."

Marianne Cunningham was one of two winners who shared the €60,000 TellyBingo Snowball prize. The other winning ticket was sold at Thomas Garvey’s on Lower Rock Street on Tralee, Co. Kerry.

Marianne found out about her win when she sat down with her family late on Friday night to view the recording of the TellyBingo show which was aired earlier in the day.

"I only sat down to watch TellyBingo very late on Friday night. I was marking off my numbers and we were all roaring and shouting as we got closer to the prize. There was absolute pandemonium in the house when my last number came out. It was such an amazing feeling."
