The town of Bailieboro in Ireland was buzzing with excitement yesterday as the townsfolk speculated on the identity of its latest EuroMillions winner. Someone had walked into Harris's SuperValu and purchased a ticket that won €186,684 in the Tuesday night drawing.
Speaking to the Anglo-Celt, SuperValu proprietor Lorraine Harris said it was the first time the store had sold a big winner in a long time. The last time was six years ago when a lucky punter bagged a €3.6 million prize.
"There is a great buzz in the shop at the moment," Harris said. "It is a lovely win and with the times that are in it—this amount of money is a bonus to anyone," she said.
As of the Wednesday evening, the National Lottery Ireland was still waiting for the mystery winner to come forward and stake their claim.
