The Cork business owner who sold the €5.3m Lotto ticket is to share the seller's prize with his staff.
Barry O'Sullivan is the store owner of Centra Innishannon which will receive €15,000 from the National Lottery - despite rumours in the local area over the weekend.
"The story in the pub last night was that I was getting €250,000 - 5%," he said, before adding that the number is in fact €15,000.
"I am going to give that to the staff. It's nice to share it around," Mr O'Sullivan said speaking to John Paul McNamara on C103's Cork Today show.
"It will go around a little bit further that way.
"It's a reward for them for all their hard work.
The search is on for the lucky winner who bought a Quick Pick ticket on Saturday.
