National Lottery reveals the Dublin shop that sold the €39m-winning ticket

Congratulations!

On Thursday at noon, the National Lottery revealed the shop that sold the recent €39m-winning EuroMillions quick-pick ticket.

The winner - who has now come forward - can thank small corner shop in the upmarket north county Dublin suburb for selling them their life-changing jackpot.

The ticket was sold on Friday, December 29 and over the Bank Holiday weekend, the National Lottery confirmed that the incredible €38,906,715 had gone to a lucky Irish winner or winners.

The numbers are 4, 8, 22, 23, 48 with the Lucky Stars numbers being 1 and 12.

National Lottery's Miriam Donohue has initially told Morning Ireland this week:

"We would love to hear from them [the winner]. They are welcome to come in and we can keep the ticket safe for them until we write that cheque and go through the claims process."

Malahide seems to be a particularly fortunate spot: a Florida-based Irish priest home for Christmas scooped €500,000 on the EuroMillions Plus draw recently.

The retired cleric – who is originally from Co Mayo – purchased in Donnybrook Fair in Malahide on December 22.

Collecting his winnings, the priest joked that God must be listening to his prayers... that wasn't his first lottery win: he at one time won IR£15,000 on the old Irish Sweepstakes.

And he also won amounts of $3,000 and $5,000 over the years in lotteries in the USA.
