A man from Rathagan, County Wexford, was the only Irish EuroMillions player to win a prize in last Friday's draw.
The winning ticket was purchased from Fullam's Newsagents. Proprietor, John Fullam, was informed he'd sold a winning ticket on Friday, but had no idea which of his customers had won the €298,934 prize.
Fullam didn't have to wonder about the winner's identity for long. The man returned to the store on Saturday morning to check his ticket and got the shock of his life when he discovered he's matched five numbers and a star.
The winner wishes to remain anonymous, but Fullam said the man was excited about his win. Fullam was equally happy about the good news. "We are delighted," he said. "It’s been a while since we had a big win."
