Residents of Letterkenny have been urged to check their EuroMillions tickets after Friday’s draw produced another EuroMillions Plus top prize winner of €500,000 – the 20th such win in Ireland so far this year.
The winning EuroMillions Plus numbers are:10, 24, 32, 41, 48
While there was no winner of Fridays €99,896,146 EuroMillions jackpot, another lucky player from Co. Wicklow matched 5 numbers in the main draw to scoop a €34,490 prize. The winning Quick Pick ticket was sold at Dunnes Stores in the Bridgewater Shopping Centre in Arklow, Co. Wicklow.
Ciaran McKenna, owner of Oldtown Stores in Letterkenny said: “I didn’t have a wink of sleep last night with the excitement. The store is only open for the past five years and it’s our first big lottery win. Due to the nature of our business, we get very little passing trade so we are almost certain that the win is local so it will be a great boost for the town. The store is absolutely hopping this morning with well-wishers for the lucky winner. Whoever the winner is, they should know that the whole town is absolutely delighted for them and we hope that they enjoy their new found fortune,” he said.
