The shop where the winning €175m Euromillions ticket was sold has been revealed
The country has been on tenterhooks this morning after news broke that an Irish ticket holder won big in last night's EuroMillions draw.
We now know that the €175 million winning ticket was bought in a shop in the small north Dublin village of Naul.
The National Lottery has confirmed that Reilly’s Daybreak in Naul was where the purchase was made.
“This is fantastic news not only for the winner but for the lucky shop that sold the ticket," a spokesman said.
"And we are delighted for Naul which is a small community."
The National Lottery earlier today revealed that the ticket holder had come forward.
Store owner Les Reilly told the Irish Mirror that he thinks a local family syndicate has scooped the money.
"If it's who I think it is, I'd be over the moon for them," he said.
"People were coming into the shop today to congratulate him and shake his hand."
This is the first time someone has won the top EuroMillions prize since January 1.
Last night's winner will take home an extremely considerable €175,475,380. The sum is the biggest jackpot ever claimed by a ticket holder in Ireland.
