Two players are now some 600,000 euros richer after a bumper lottery draw on Saturday.
The staggering jackpot of €19 million was up for grabs, but it went unclaimed as no one was able to match the six numbers.
However, two players came painfully close, with five matching the extra ball for €595,521 each.
61 players match five numbers to win €1122 each.
There was no first prize winner in the Lotto Plus One draw, which is worth 1,000,000 euros.
There was no first prize winner in the Lotto Plus Two draw, which is worth 250 thousand euros.

Nearly 30 per cent of every euro spent on all national lotteries is due to good causes in sports, youth, health, welfare, education, arts, heritage and the Irish language. In total, more than 6 billion euros have been raised for good causes since the creation of the national lottery 34 years ago. In 2020 alone, €254 million was raised for local good causes in communities across Ireland.
