It is time to check those tickets.

Someone in Ireland is €500,000 richer after Friday night's EuroMillions draw.

The National Lottery have confirmed the lucky EuroMillions Plus ticket was sold in Cork. The winning numbers were 5, 20, 29, 35 and 44.

And while nobody won the main prize, more than 55,000 players in Ireland won prizes in the main draw - so it's not entirely bad news.

The draw comes as one lucky player in the UK won €190 million on Tuesday.

The player's identity will remain anonymous unless they decide to go public with the winnings.

Whether the ticket-holder is an individual person or a syndicate will also be kept a secret unless the player decides otherwise.

The €190 million jackpot had to be won on Tuesday, October 8 as it had hit its maximum capacity of five consecutive unwon draws -  the first time the EuroMillions draw has ever reached its five time cap in its 15 year history.

The winning numbers were 7, 10, 15, 44, and 49. The lucky stars were 3 and 12.

A lucky person in Rathfarnham, Dublin, also scooped up a decent €500,000 in Tuesday's draw. 

The ticket was sold in the Centra store on the Grange Road in Rathfarnham.

The shop celebrated the news on their Facebook page, saying that they were "delighted" for one of their customers.
