Liam Glynn, BoyleSports’ spokesperson said: “After a massive May Bank Holiday weekend bashing from punters, another customer has won big with BoyleSports from a small stake in the latest Euro Millions draw.

"We would like to congratulate the Co Louth customer and wish them happy spending with their winnings.
