A newspaper seller in a south Dublin town has been revealed as the location where the €1m EuroMillions ticket for last Friday’s raffle was purchased.
The National Lottery is inviting EuroMillions players in Blackrock in Co Dublin and surrounding areas to check out their tickets after confirming that a spar store in Woodbine Park in Black Rock was the venue for Friday’s €1 million ‘Ireland Only Raffle’ sale.
Friday’s EuroMillions ‘Ireland Only Raffle’ winning draw code, worth €1,005,000 for one lucky Dublin player is: I LLD 48404.
Winning store owner, Aidan Cronnelly was delighted to learn of his customers’ big win.
“We are very happy. The store itself is a local community store, and we know every customer by name, so we are 99 percent sure the win comes from the local community making it even more satisfying. We have worked in the store for over 22 years and this is our first win We are in the lottery, so we will be enjoying the festivities on behalf of our lucky customers.”
The famous local store owner also moved to quell any rumors in the area that he was in fact the owner of the winning ticket.
“By the way, I’m on holiday in Portugal with my family, so I can’t be part of the festivities in the shop! I’m sure my absence will be noticed in society, but I can guarantee I didn’t take the loot and run away!”
“We’re really happy with the winner, whoever they are, and we wish them every ounce of luck with their big prize,” he added.
Last night’s EuroMillions raffle was the second raffle in the eagerly awaited ‘Ireland Only Raffle’ event that secures five new Ireland millionaires over the course of two weeks. Another Millionaire will be made on Tuesday 17th August.
