A National Lottery spokesperson said it will reveal the name of the winning store in the coming days.
The spokesperson said: “As always with multi-million jackpot wins, it is important that we inform the winning retailer and of course to give the winning ticketholder the time and space they need to let this life-changing €5.3 million win sink in.
"Last night’s draw produced more than 77,000 winners across the country so we’re asking everyone who bought a ticket for last night’s Lotto draws to check those tickets especially if you played in Co. Kilkenny.”
