Lucky Limerick person swoops €1million windfall in EuroMillions draw

ONE LUCKY Limerick person woke up this morning to the decidedly life changing news that they had won €1million.

An online National Lottery player from County Limerick woke up this morning €1million richer, having won big in Friday night’s EuroMillions draw. The lucky Limerick lad or lady has become the 26th National Lottery millionaire this year so far.

The winner, who may have yet to discover their life changing win, had the ‘Ireland Only Raffle’ code I-PPB-77670 worth €1,005,000.

According to the National Lottery, there were no winners of Friday’s €39million jackpot, meaning that this coming Tuesday’s jackpot will roll over to a whopping €50million. However, Limerick’s newest millionaire will be joined today in celebration by a EuroMillions Plus draw winner of €500,000.

The €500,000 winning ticket was sold at the Applegreen service station in Millenium Park in Naas, County Kildare, but so far the identity of the winner is unknown.
