THIS weekend has taken a turn for the better for one person in Clare – because The National Lottery has revealed that the winning ticket for Friday night’s €500,000 Ireland only Euromillions Plus draw was purchased in Ennis.

Lottery HQ are urging people to check their lucky numbers because the winner is yet to present themselves. The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased in Dunnes Stores and the numbers are 8, 15, 19, 21 and 42.

Another winner of the Euromillions Plus prize from Clare picked up her winnings on Friday, having gone a whole month without realising she had the ticket.


A National Lottery spokesperson said: “Ireland is on a winning streak with Euromillions this year, with 28 of our players boosting their bank balances. This is a great start to this huge sporting day for our Clare player. We urge everybody to check their tickets and look forward to welcoming them into the National Lottery Winner’s Room.

“We are also urging our players to get in the game and to play Lotto tonight which has a life-changing jackpot of €4 million.

“If they are too busy in front of the television watching the big games to go to their local shop to buy a ticket they can do so from the comfort of their sitting room by playing online at or through the National Lottery App. We wish our players best of luck with the Lotto and our rugby and soccer heroes the best of luck in their big games.”
