The co-owner of a service station in Kerry where Ireland's newest millionaire purchased their Lotto ticket has said it’s very likely that the lucky winner is a local. 

Fitzgerald Centra garage in Listowel sold the winning Daily Millions Quick Pick ticket for Thursday night's draw.

Co-owner Charlie Cantillon, who has run it with pal Dan O’ Connor for 25 years said: "What a way this is to start the year for one of our lucky customers.

"There has been a lot of lottery luck in the Kingdom lately and it’s just incredible when you get the call to tell you that you have sold a big winning ticket.

"With the ongoing travel restrictions, it is very likely that the customer is a local which makes the win even more sweet for us as business owners and for the wider community too.

"Whoever the winners are, we hope that they enjoy the win and they get to celebrate it properly with friends and family once all of these restrictions are over."

The winning numbers from the Daily Million Draw were: 05, 07, 09, 16, 34, 37 and the bonus number was 21.

A National Lottery spokesman said: "This latest €1 million win in Co. Kerry comes on the back of a hugely successful 2020 in terms of prizes won in the Kingdom last year.

"In total, Kerry players won over €23 million in prizes which included prizes such as a €9.7 million Lotto jackpot in Killarney last April, a €1 million Lotto Plus 1 top prize in December and another €1 million Daily Million top prize in Milltown in February."
