IRELAND has its newest millionaire after National Lottery bosses announced there was one lucky winner of a massive €7.5 million jackpot in last night's Lotto draw.
Lottery bosses announced this morning that the lucky winner was a customer of a shop in Thurles, Co Tipperary, who is now exactly €7,545,870 richer.
The ticket was sold in Eason in Thurles Shopping Centre in Co. Tipperary.
Store Manager Deirdre O'Toole told The Irish Times: "We are all so excited for the lucky customer. We have no idea who it is – hopefully one of our regulars."
She added: "There’s a very local bunch of customers who buy lotto tickets here every week. Most are buying small amounts, though there are a few syndicates as well. We’ll just have to wait and see.”
There was also one winner of the Lotto Plus 2 draw, with someone in the North of Ireland holding a ticket worth €250,000.
