FORMER Naas rugby player Mark Waldron has become a Lotto winner.
Now a Cork-based greengrocer, Mark picked up a cheque for E25,000 – his Lotto match 5 plus the bonus number prize from a recent draw.
Mark, originally from Naas in Co. Kildare, currently runs a greengrocers on Lower Cork Street in Mitchelstown called Mark’s Fruit ‘n’ Veg. He bought his lucky E10 quick pick ticket in Centra, Lower Cork St, Mitchelstown, Co. Cork and plans to use the win to pay some loans.
