The winning ticket for last night’s Lotto draw was sold in Milltown.
The winning ticket is worth almost €4.5m.
The National Lottery confirmed that the shop that sold the golden Quick Pick ticket was Ryan’s Daybreak and Post Office in the small village of Milltown, Co Galway. The ticket was purchased on Thursday.
The winning numbers are: 14, 24, 30, 38, 40, 45 and bonus number 36.
The owners of the family owned shop and post office were stunned today when they were informed they had sold a mega winning Lotto ticket.
One of the shop owners and granddaughter of its founder, Clare O’Connor, said the entire family is overjoyed at the news of the massive win.
Clare’s grandfather started the shop which was then taken over by her parents, Joe and Anne, who are now semi-retired. The business, which also has a pub, is now run by Clare and her two brothers Tim and John.
