One lucky Irish person, or possibly a syndicate, is nearly €24 million better off today if they have the winning ticket in the latest EuroMillions draw.

It’s bound to send everybody rushing to check their numbers, the winning ones being 2, 11, 13, 40 and 50.

The Irish ticket was the sole winner of the EuroMillions jackpot.

While it’s not the biggest win in this country, it will potentially provide the ticket holder with a carefree life where purchasing exotic holiday islands, top-of-the-rage villas and sports cars are just a matter of signing a cheque.

The biggest Irish win remains with Limerick woman Dolores McNamara who in 2005 scooped a €115m jackpot.

An anonymous Irish person won €66m last January.
