Someone in Ireland has won €500,000 in Friday night's EuroMillions draw

What a way to start the weekend.

Someone in Ireland has won €500,000 in tonight's EuroMillions draw.

The overall jackpot was worth a staggering €38,399,547 tonight, after rolling over for a little more than a week.

The lucky numbers were 3, 7, 12, 42 and 50. The lucky stars drawn were 6 and 8.

And while nobody won the main prize, someone in Ireland did win the EuroMillions Plus jackpot, which is worth €500,000.

The numbers that came up in the draw were 14, 25, 26, 31 and 37.

According to the National Lottery, the winning ticket was sold in Meath. No other details - including the exact location of where the ticket was sold - are available, but we'll keep you posted.

The last time that the EuroMillions jackpot was won was on Tuesday, November 19 when a lucky player in the UK won an estimated £105 million.

Dad-of-three Steve Thomson was the lucky winner, and admitted he was a "skating, gibbering wreck" when he realised what he won.

"I walked round the living room a few times, I went out to the van, I went back in, it was five minutes of madness then I decided to go and tell [his wife] Lenka," he recalled after claiming the mammoth check.

He added that he was planning to be "sensibly generous" with the winnings.
