The ticket, which was purchased from the Barrack Street Service Station in Balieboro contains the winning numbers of 3,26,32,34 and 35. 

Manager of the shop, Paula Roe, said she is absolutely thrilled: "It's our first major National Lottery winner we've had since we started the business in 2008 - so we were long due one!".
