• There's double delight in the West, as the National Lottery has confirmed that the winning ticket of last night's EuroMillions jackpot worth €17 million was sold in Connacht.

    This is the first EuroMillions jackpot won in Ireland this year, and the 15th Irish win since the EuroMillions began in 2004.

    The National Lottery says they need to inform the winning retailer and give the lucky ticketholder the time and space they need to let this win sink in, so they will announce in the coming days the location of the store that sold the golden ticket.

    EuroMillions players across Connacht are urged to check their ticket to see if they've won this life-changing prize.

    The winning numbers are 24, 26, 32, 43, 46 and the Lucky Star numbers are 6 and 10.

    And separately, a player in Mayo scooped half a million euro after winning the EuroMillions Plus top prize last night.

    The winning ticket was sold yesterday at the Easons store in Castlebar and is worth €500,000.

    The National Lottery is advising the lucky ticketholders to sign the back of the ticket and contact their claims team to make arrangements to collect their prizes.




  • Garryduff Stores in Castlebar has sold a €500,000 EuroMillions ticket for last night’s draw.

    The shop on Pound Road in Castlebar sold the ticket for one of the top prizes in last night’s draw.

    This is the second big win for the store, as they sold the winning €28.9m EuroMillions ticket last July.

  • Last night's EuroMillions jackpot, worth 175 million Euro, was won by a single ticket bought in Ireland.

    It hasn't been confirmed where the winning ticket was bought but the holder has become the biggest Irish lotto jackpot winner ever.

    The winning numbers were 1,8, 18, 19 and 39 - the lucky stars were 7 and 9.

    The National Lottery says it may take a few days to pinpoint where the winning ticket was sold.

    The record-breaking win is higher than the €115 million won by Limerick woman Dolores McNamara in 2005.

    This is the 14th Irish EuroMillions win, since the game was launched here in 2004.

    Two of the winning tickets were sold in Castlebar - in April 2014, a prize of €15 million was claimed on a ticket sold at Staunton's Costcutter in Castlebar, and in July 2017, a syndicate from the West of Ireland won a €29 million Euromillions jackpot after buying their ticket in Garryduff XL store on Pound Road in Castlebar.

  • Patients and workers at Portiuncula hospital in Ballinasloe, Co. Galway have this morning been urged to check their EuroMillions tickets after Tuesday night’s EuroMillions draw produced another EuroMillions Plus top prize winner of €500,000 – the fifth win in Ireland so far this year.

    The winning Quick Pick ticket was bought yesterday at the Oasis Shop which caters for hospital patients, visitors and workers.

    Portiuncula Hospital Ballinasloe is an acute general and maternity Hospital. The catchment area includes patients residing in the East Galway, Roscommon, Midlands and Mid-Western areas.

    The winning EuroMillions Plus numbers are: 13, 15, 22, 25, 41.

    There was no winner of the Tuesday’s EuroMillions €115 million jackpot which means that Friday’s jackpot now rolls to a whopping €130 million.

  • Two weeks after winning Ireland’s 15th EuroMillions jackpot, a large Mayo family syndicate has finally come forward to National Lottery headquarters in Dublin this week to collect their truly life-changing €17 million prize which they won on Tuesday 11th February.

    The winning Quick Pick ticket was sold at Mulroy’s Londis in Castlebar, Co Mayo. This is the third winning EuroMillions jackpot ticket to be sold in the Mayo town since the EuroMillions game was launched in 2004.

    The family, who wish to keep their win private, discussed the excitement which has encapsulated their lives over the past two weeks since they found out about their incredible win.

    As the mother and father of the syndicate woke up the morning after the draw, they were completely oblivious to the fact that the winning jackpot ticket worth €17 million was sold locally. Coincidentally, a winning €500,000 EuroMillions Plus ticket was sold in Castlebar on the same night, and they hoped that they might have that winning ticket.

    Recalling that life-changing morning, the mother of the family syndicate said:

    “On Wednesday morning, we heard that the EuroMillions Plus prize of €500,000 had been won in Castlebar the previous night so there was a bit of excitement knowing we potentially had a chance of having that winning ticket.

  • Mayo is Ireland's second luckiest county in the Euromillions game, according to the National Lottery.

    23 EuroMillions top prize winners in Mayo have shared over €51 million in prizes since the game was launched in 2004.

    That translates into a top prize winner for every 5,700 people in Mayo.

    Co Louth - Ireland's smallest county - topped the table with the most EuroMillions winners per head of population.

    EuroMillions players in Co Roscommon are among the unluckiest - according to this report - in 25th place out of 26 counties with only 4 top prize EuroMillions winners in the past 15 years.



  • A Mayo man travelled to National Lottery headquarters in Dublin yesterday to claim a cheque for €500,000.

    He won the Euromillions Plus prize on 16th February, after buying the lucky ticket at Garryduff XL Store on Pound Road in Castlebar.

    The winner told Lottery staff that he plans to use some of the money to buy a house.


  • A Mayo father was said to be grinning from ear to ear as he and his family travelled to National Lottery headquarters in Dublin today to claim a €500,000 EuroMillions Plus top prize which he won on Tuesday 11th February.

    He had bought his winning ticket in Eason’s Castlebar.

    The National Lottery say that the delighted family who wish to remain private were more than happy that their huge win went under the radar locally after it was confirmed that the €17 million EuroMillions jackpot was also won in Castlebar on the same night, in Mulroy’s Londis in Moneen.


  • A record number of Irish winners scooped one of the top prizes in last night's EuroMillions draw.

    Four winning EuroMillions Plus prizes were won, each worth 5 hundred thousand euro.

    They were sold in Kerry, Limerick, Sligo and online, with the National Lottery encouraging people to check their tickets.

    It's only the second time in the history of the game that Ireland has 4 top prize EuroMilllions Plus winners in one night.

    Meanwhile there was no winner of the 1 hundred and fifty 1 million euro EuroMillions jackpot, which means that Tuesday's jackpot now rolls to 1 hundred and sixty million euros.




    The National Lottery has confirmed that an 18-person syndicate won last night’s Euromillions Plus prize of half a million euro.

    The syndicate is a group of administration staff from Portiuncla Hospital in Ballinasloe.

    The winning Quick Pick ticket was bought yesterday in the Oasis shop within Portiuncla Hospital.

    A spokesperson for the National Lottery told Midwest News this afternoon that the syndicate has made contact them, and the winning ticket has been verified.

    Arrangements are now being made for the group to collect the prize.

    There was no winner of last night’s EuroMillions jackpot of 115 million euro.

  • Supervalu in Westport has sold a winning ticket in the Euromillions draw.

    A ticket sold at the store won the second-highest prize in last night's Euromillions draw  - and is worth almost €473,000.

  • It's been confirmed that Tuesday's winning EuroMillions ticket, worth €17 million, was sold in Co Mayo.

    Yesterday, the National Lottery confirmed the ticket was sold in Connacht, but has today announced the ticket was sold somewhere in Co Mayo.

    The location of the shop that sold the golden ticket will not be announced until tomorrow.

    This is the third EuroMillions jackpot to be won in Mayo since the EuroMillions began in 2004 - with a prize worth €15 million won in Castlebar in April 2014, and again in Castlebar in July 2017 when a syndicate won €29 million after buying their ticket in Garryduff XL Store on Pound Road in Castlebar.

    While we don't yet know where in Mayo this week's winning ticket was sold, the National Lottery is urging Mayo players to check their tickets to see if they're Ireland's newest multi-millionaire.

    The winning numbers on Wed night were 24,26, 32, 43, 46 and the Lucky Star numbers are 6 and 10.

    This wasn't the only prize won in Mayo this week, as the Euromillions Plus top prize of €500,000 was won by a ticket sold in Eason's in Castlebar.

  • Last night's winning Euro Millions ticket was sold in North County Dublin.

    Carey's Newsagents & Bookstore on Main Street, Belmullet sold a ticket that was one of 10 picked in Ireland during a EuroMillions raffle.
