The Mystery Letterkenny Gaels Lotto Jackpot winner of €6,250 was found fishing on  Lough Keel (between Kilmacrennan  and Milford) on Monday evening.
A few local Lotto analysts were together in the Glencar Inn on Monday evening attempting to figure out who the winner might be.
A No. of calls were made before they could track down the mystery winner.
Brendan Duffy Dromore Letterkenny called our club treasurer, John McDermott, who recognised the mobile No as been very similar to that on the original ticket. Brendan gave the club executive all the details requested on the poster.
On Wednesday evening they were delighted to confirm him as the winner.
He bought his Lotto in McGinleys Bar on Friday the 12th and the Lotto seller wrote Brendans mobile No on the ticket at the time. The No  was one digit out.
The Letterkenny Gaels club wish to thank all our participating pubs McGinleys, Downtown, Voodoo,Glencar Inn, Swilly Inn, Orchard, Central, Brewery Arena 7 and The Pin Tavern , The Public at large and  the expert analysts for their help in finding the winner.
