Earlier this week, one lucky player in Tipperary scooped up the EuroMillions Plus' top prize - with the winning ticket sold in Thurles, at Ely's Centra Store.
It comes as, earlier this month, one lucky player in Mayo won the €17million EuroMillions jackpot.
The lucky ticket was sold at at Mulroy’s Londis in Castlebar, Co Mayo and is the third winning jackpot ticket sold in the town.
This is the 15th EuroMillions win in Ireland since the game began in 2004. The first Castlebar EuroMillions jackpot was won in April 2014 when a prize worth €15 million was claimed on a ticket sold in Castlebar, Co. Mayo. This ticket was bought at Staunton's Costcutter Express on Main Street, Castlebar.
Three years later Mayo got its second winner, again in Castlebar, when a syndicate from the west of Ireland won €29 million in July 2017. This ticket was sold at Garryduff XL Store, of Pound Road, Castlebar. All in all Castlebar is home to no less than nine EuroMillions top prizes.
"I’m speechless. It was quite a shock to hear the news that we had sold this winning EuroMillions ticket. The word came through from the National Lottery yesterday evening and we’re all delighted at Mulroy’s Londis. I had to keep the news from the staff until this morning, but we are having a great day of celebrations down here," a delighted Alan Mulroy, owner of Mulroy’s Londis said.
"I can’t thank our staff enough for all their work over the years. We’ve been running the store in the Castlebar community for the past 27 years and I’m just thrilled for our customers who have supported us over this time. The majority of our customers are locals so l really do hope it is someone in the Castlebar community. Whoever it is, I wish them the very best of luck!”
