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

A spokesperson for the National Lottery said: “The luck of the Irish certainly continues for our players in the EuroMillions game. Players in Ireland are enjoying a bumper year in the EuroMillions Plus game with 26 top prize winners of the €500,000 top prize.

"We look forward to welcoming all of last night’s big winners into National Lottery headquarters next week."

Meanwhile, there was no winner of the €151m EuroMillions jackpot, which means that Tuesday's draw now rolls to €160m.
