EuroMillions winner that scooped €29m contacts National Lottery
The holder of the winning ticket that scooped Friday night's massive EuroMillions jackpot has been in touch with National Lottery HQ.
However, Lotto chiefs are keeping tight lipped about the location of the winner and they are refusing to say at this stage if the huge windfall was won by an individual or a syndicate.
In a statement a spokesperson for the National Lottery said:
“We want to give the winner time and space to make arrangements and to let the news sink in. The name of the winning shop will be made known in the next day or so.”
“This is an incredible amount of money to win and we are delighted to have another winner of EuroMillions in Ireland.”
Friday saw Ireland claim its 11th jackpot and you can find a full breakdown of all the winners right here.
