Excitement in Offaly as EuroMillions player scoops €500k prize

The winning ticket was sold at the Newsround shop in the Dunnes Shopping Centre in Tullamore.

There was great excitement in Tullamore this morning after a local shop sold a winning ticket worth €500,000 on last night’s EuroMillions Plus draw.

The winning ticket was sold at the Newsround shop in the Dunnes Shopping Centre in Tullamore, Co Offaly and it is the fourth EuroMillions Plus to be won in Ireland so far in 2019.

Speaking on selling this golden ticket, store owner, Ian Kelly commented:

“There is some great excitement in Tullamore this morning and the staff at the shop have been spreading the good news to our customers, encouraging them all to check their tickets.

I’m delighted that we sold this winning EuroMillions prize to one of our customers and hope it brings a lot of happiness to them. Best of luck to whoever it is.

The winning EuroMillions Plus numbers were: 2, 18, 32, 36 and 46.

Meanwhile, Dublin and Cork EuroMillions players fell just one number short of scooping a mega €151m EuroMillions jackpot.

The players won a nice €293,221 each after matching five numbers and a lucky star.

These winning tickets were sold at Dunnes Stores in Cornelscourt Shopping Centre, Foxrock, Dublin 18 and the other was bought at O’Riordan’s Filling Station, Lower Bluepool in Kanturk, Co Cork.

A National Lottery spokesperson advised today:

“If you are one of these three lucky ticket holders, be sure to keep the ticket safe, sign the back of the ticket and contact our prize claims team on 01 836 4444 and we will make arrangements for you to come to the National Lottery to get your prize”.
