Cash windfall options: pay down the mortgage or enhance our pension?

Q&A: As public servants you can invest in AVCs or purchase notional service

My husband and I built our home last year. We were lucky to qualify for the first-time buyers grant and received just under €20,000. We took out a mortgage of 70 per cent loan to value.

We have come into some money and now we would like to pay off €40,000 from our mortgage. Is there any issue in doing this? In particular from Revenue with the Help to Buy grant?
