Someone in Galway still has to claim that €8.5m jackpot

Any of your mates much happier today? We also know where the ticket was sold.

If you were too caught up in the razzle-dazzle of Eurovision, the news about the most recent Lotto jackpot may have passed you by but trust us, it's a colossal sum.


Some lucky person in the west of Ireland is far, far, FAR happier this morning because the €8,549,067 jackpot has been won by a lucky player in Galway.

In fact, Galway Bay FM has reported that the winning ticket was sold at Corrib Oil in Loughrea.

Christ, imagine if it turned out that Ed Sheeran actually bought the ticket? Wouldn't you go mad?

Anyways, they've also reported that the National Lottery is urging the lucky ticket holder to make contact with them as soon as possible.

If it turns out to be your mate, now might be a good time to ask them for a fiver...or fifty grand!

Big congratulations to whoever the lucky winner is.
