National Lottery reveals where winning Euromillions ticket was sold
The winners of Tuesday’s EuroMillions jackpot have made contact with National Lottery HQ in Dublin.
The National Lottery confirmed that the winning ticket for the €15m jackpot was sold in the west of the country, and "the ticketholders … are looking forward to collecting the prize".
This brings the total won by EuroMillions players in Ireland to over €639m since the game launched here in 2004.
In less than a year, there have been three EuroMillions jackpot wins in Ireland.
Last June, a lucky player scooped €94m. That ticket was purchased in Mace, Beaumont, Dublin 9.
In September, a young man from the South East shared a jackpot of over €25.6m with a player in Spain, taking home €12.8m. He purchased his lucky ticket in Ardkeen Superstores, Waterford.
Since Ireland joined the EuroMillions game in 2004, players in Ireland have hit the jackpot six times.
Limerick’s Dolores McNamara continues to hold the record for the largest Irish EuroMillions win of over €115m in 2005.
This Friday’s EuroMillions jackpot is a guaranteed €15m.
