Seven of the 20 person syndicate from Lloyds Pharmacy in Castletroy in Co. Limerick was in Dublin to celebrate their win, despite the fact that they missed out on the €10m jackpot on offer that night by one solitary number.

"To come to visit the National Lottery’s Winners Room is probably a once in a lifetime moment which we will cherish forever," said syndicate member Rebecca Ryan.

"We might have narrowly missed out on the €10 million jackpot but this is still a very special moment for us all to celebrate together.

"Since we got the news last week, we have been absolutely buzzing with all of the excitement and now that we’ve got a taste for winning, we’re hoping that we get back to Lotto HQ very soon to claim an even bigger prize."

The syndicate was among those collecting over €160,000 in Lotto and scratch card prizes today.
