Dublin family collects €191k Euromillions jackpot almost eight weeks after draw

A Dublin family has collected a cheque for €191,461 from the National Lottery Headquarters today after their EuroMillions win in April.

They had won the prize after matching five numbers and a Lucky Star on the main EuroMillions draw on Friday, April 29.

The delighted family, who wish to keep their win private, bought their winning Quick-Pick ticket at the Spar in Castleknock Village, Dublin 15, on the day of the draw.

There were two Irish winners of the EuroMillions Match 5 + 1 Lucky Star Prize that day, but the other winning ticket is still to be claimed.

It was sold at Tesco in the Galway Shopping Centre on Headford Road in Co. Galway.

Friday’s EuroMillions jackpot is around €40m.
