Someone in Ireland is €1 million richer after the Euromillions draw
Start checking those tickets.
With the Christmas season fast approaching, we wouldn't complain if we got a bit of extra cash in our pocket.
Hell, even €5 would suffice but one lucky person in Ireland will have plenty more loose change than that after becoming a millionaire on Tuesday night, when National Lottery confirmed one winner of the Ireland-only raffle Euromillions draw, worth €1 million.
The winning raffle ticket code on the EuroMillions Ireland-only raffle prize is I-HKM-23791.
Every EuroMillions line bought in Ireland has a unique Ireland-0nly raffle code, from which 10 are drawn to win €5,000 in each standard draw.
However, this week's draws will see each of the 10 Ireland-Only raffle winners receiving the usual €5,000 and they'll also be placed in another draw to be in with the chance to win a life-changing €1 million.
Players are being urged to check their tickets to see if they own the lucky ticket and it's not currently known where the winning ticket was purchased.
In the Ireland-only EuroMillions Plus draw - worth €500,000 - the numbers drawn were 1, 18, 22, 29 and 36. However, there was no winner in that draw.
A player from the the UK, meanwhile, won the overall EuroMillions jackpot, which was worth just over €48 million, a staggering amount of money.
This winner claimed the life-changing sum after matching numbers 18, 31, 32, 38, 48 and lucky stars 4 and 12.
