The holders of a disputed lottery ticket, worth over £1.5m, have come forward this afternoon.
Thomas and Mary Cullen from Prosperous, Co Kildare, say they own the winning ticket, which was bought at the Gem newsagents in Naas, last Saturday.
Mr Cullen has told the High Court that he has signed the back of the lottery ticket and lodged it with a Newbridge bank pending the High Court decision in January.
However, George and Patricia Murray, from Naas, claim they are the rightful winners of half the jackpot and say the shop accidentally gave them a "quick-pick" instead of their usual numbers last week.
The High Court has extended an injunction preventing the National Lottery from paying out half of last Saturday’s £3.3m Lotto jackpot.
The injunction was sought by the Murrays.
