One player has walked away with the €2,775,644 jackpot, and the winning ticket was sold in Limerick.
Speaking to the Limerick Leader, Arthur Rogaczewski, the manager of Twohig’s Supervalu in the Arena Service Station on Church Street in Askeaton, said:
"This is unbelievable news. What a way for one of our customers to start their Christmas! There is huge speculation as to who the winner might be we are really hoping it is a local. As the town is now by-passed the chances are it is a local rather than someone passing through."
"It is our first big lottery win and we really hope it makes someone’s Christmas a very happy one. This is great for the town and the store. We have between 50 and 60 staff and this is giving us the perfect buzz in the lead up to Christmas."
