An Irish family who won 175million (153m) decided to take the BUS to hand in their winning ticket.

Gerry Brown, from Co Dublin, says they've had a "hectic" time this week while they decide what to do with the largest jackpot in Ireland's history.

The syndicate, made up of nine siblings, received the winning cheque on Thursday.

The winning ticket was bought from Reilly's Daybreak newsagents in The Naul, in the north of County Dublin.

Gerry, who is the husband of one of the winners, said he almost had to call an ambulance for his wife when she realised she had won.

He told RTE radio on Friday: "She could hardly talk, I was nearly going to get an ambulance for her."

His wife hid the winning ticket in an Argos catalogue overnight before travelling on the bus the next day to Ireland's National Lottery headquarters.

There was huge media focus on their local village before the family's identity was revealed and Gerry said waiting media were oblivious as they passed, and even waved to them from the bus having deposited the ticket.

He thanked residents for keeping quiet about who the family were and where they lived, describing it as a "lovely place to live".






He added that the family are now keen to get back to normality after the staggering win.

Gerry said: "I would be hoping to get back to it (normal life). I'd rather just go back the way I was. Happy enough before I won it so I don't want it to change too much."

Gerry did say that he hopes to buy a bike - said to be worth around 13,000 - with some of the winnings as he's a keen cyclist.

He said: "For me, I'll probably buy one of the best bikes you can buy. I'm mad into cycling so that's the only thing I'd be thinking of."

In a statement released through the Irish National Lottery, the family said: "This is life-changing for all of the family and we are absolutely thrilled.

"We have spent the last week getting independent legal and financial advice, and our win is slowly sinking in.

"We are a very close family and this is a dream come true for us. We want this win to change our lives in a positive way."

National Lottery chief executive Dermot Griffin said: "I am absolutely thrilled for the family and it was a pleasure meeting them in National Lottery HQ and to share their excitement and joy.

"Happy days like this is part of what playing National Lottery games is all about. This has been a historic few weeks for us with our biggest ever jackpot payout."
