A newsagent in Dublin has sold a winning  €1 million Daily Millions lotto ticket.

Jay’s Newsagents on Rosemount Avenue in Artane, Dublin 5, sold the winning ticket, however a winner is yet to come forward.

The person who purchased their ticket for Thursday’s 9pm Daily Million draw at the busy Dublin 5 shop has become the 10th National Lottery millionaire of the year after scooping the top prize of €1 million.

The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased on the day of the draw (17th February).

“Our shop is situated in the centre of quite a local community here in Artane so we’re absolutely thrilled with the good news,” Jason said.

“We have lots of locals who come into the shop regularly so we’ll have to encourage them all to check their tickets soon.

“It’s brilliant news to get so we just hope that the winner realises soon that they have become an overnight millionaire – we wish them all the very best with their exciting win!”
