The last time Julianne Mullin won on the lottery, she blew all the cash before she left the shop.

But the young Fermanagh woman's £56.30 winnings on that occasion pale into insignificance compared to the cheque she collected yesterday.

And after scooping the £414,041 on last week's EuroMillions draw she vowed to keep working and spend the cash wisely.

Julianne (28) from Belleek, said that she "could not believe it" when she put her ticket in the scanner and learned what she had won.

It is in stark contrast to her previous, smaller win. "I blew it in the shop that I checked the ticket in," she said.

Champagne flowed as Julianne was toasted yesterday at Lotto headquarters in Dublin.

Julianne said: "I checked it on the quick scanner twice and then that was it".

She had gone to get a sandwich for herself and a work colleague - but when she returned to JG Kelly Supplies in Co Monaghan with the news "no work got done".

Speaking about her plans, she said: "I'll probably just spend a bit of it. You know the normal car, maybe a holiday. I had planned to go to Australia."
