Big Win in County Meath

Wednesday's €6.5 million Irish Lotto jackpot was won by a customer of the Mimnagh Shop, in Slane, County Meath.

A lottery representative rang store manager Peter Fleming the morning after the draw and told him he'd sold a ticket worth €6,496,218, but Fleming has no idea who the lucky winner might be.

"I found out this morning [Thursday] at 7.30 when the lottery rep rang me to tell me the good news that somebody who bought it in Slane has won the six-and-a-half million," Fleming said.

"They told me it was bought on Tuesday—a quick-pick line on a multi-draw ticket. That's all they could tell me. I wouldn't have an absolute clue who it was."
