Shop where winning Euromillions ticket was sold revealed
Someone's woken up €30 million richer...
Luck is in the air, as just weeks after a Mayo family took home the largest jackpot in Irish lotto history, someone else has won over €30 million in the Euromillions.
The winning Quick Pick ticket worth €30,928,078 was sold on Sunday (6 February) at Larkin’s Gala Service Station, Garryurtneal, Ballina, Killaloe, Co. Clare, with an eircode of TR9XV94 in Tipperary.
The lucky player has officially become the 17th EuroMillions jackpot winner ever seen in Ireland.
Siobhan Larkin, who owns the shop where the winning ticket was sold along with her husband Michael, was delighted with the newes of the sale.
“When our visitors from the National Lottery arrived here on Sunday evening, I was totally overwhelmed and in quite a state of shock," Larkin said.
"I couldn’t believe that it was our store that sold the winning ticket worth €30.9 million. We are coming up to 21 years in business here this March so what a way this is to mark the occasion.
"The vast majority of our customers are locals so we hope that the winner might be a local too and wish them all the very best with their huge win.”
“This win is going to be absolutely huge for the community. It’s become a bit of a running joke now as to where the winning ticket was actually sold because of our unique border location – was it Clare, Limerick or Tipperary?
"As proud Tipperary people, we’ll be claiming the win for Tipp!”
The National Lottery are continuing to ask players to check their tickets very carefully in case they have the winning ticket.
The winner is advised to sign the back of their ticket and to keep it in a safe place.
The player should make contact with the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and arrangements will be made for them to claim their massive prize.
