Family-run Cavan service station sells €500,000 EuroMillions ticket
Players in Cavan are being urged to check their tickets.
A family-run service station in the Cavan town of Bailieboro spoke of their delight as they sold a National Lottery ticket worth €500,000 on Tuesday night’s EuroMillions draw.
The winning ticket was sold in a Daybreak/Texaco service station on Barrack Street, which has been run by the Roe family since 2008.
The Roe family said that it comes as a much-needed bit of good news after the lockdown made things tough for the whole community over the past few months.
Last night’s winning EuroMillions Plus numbers, which are now worth €500,000 for one lucky player, were: 03, 26, 32, 34 and 35.
The National Lottery is now urging its EuroMillions players in Cavan to check their tickets to see if they have won this €500,000 prize.
Speaking on selling the winning ticket, Paula Roe, manager of Barrack Street Service Station, said: "We’re absolutely thrilled with the win as it’s our first major National Lottery winner we’ve had since we started the business in 2008 – so we were long due one.
"It’s a great bit of news for the town too as so much of our business comes from Bailieborough locals so fingers crossed the winner is one of our regular customers.
"Things have been tough over the last few months with the lockdown which saw business slow but we are building back up now and this win is a nice boost for us. Best of luck to the winner!"
So if you bought a ticket in the Baileboro Daybreak, get checking, and remember who told you about it when you collect your winnings.
