One lucky ticket holder in Ireland wins £76m EuroMillions jackpot

Just one ticket matched five main numbers and two lucky stars in Tuesday’s draw. The winning numbers were 05, 01, 23, 17, 07, Camelot said. The Lucky Star numbers were 03 and 08. The winner will need to contact the National Lottery in Ireland to claim their prize. An estimated EuroMillions jackpot of £14 million is up for grabs on Friday. The National Lottery in Dublin confirmed that there was one winner from Ireland of the Europe-wide €88.58m (£75.86m) jackpot. There have been nine Euromillions winners from Ireland so far, including the biggest jackpot winner, Dolores McNamara. McNamara, from Limerick, won more than €115m in 2005. McNamara realised she had won the Euromillions while watching the draw live on TV inside her local pub, The Track Bar, in Garryowen, Co Limerick. She whipped out the €2 winning ticket from her handbag, threw it on the table and said to one of her friends around the pub table: “Check that for me.” Then she downed a brandy when her numbers were confirmed and burst into tears. McNamara, who is estimated to earn up to €3m a year in interest, has kept a low profile for the past 12 years. She bought houses for her six children and spent €2m on a house within 38 acres of land in Co Clare.
