There is great excitement in Tullamore, Offaly’s largest town, after a local shop sold a winning ticket worth €500,000 on last night’s EuroMillions Plus draw.

In addition, two other Irish EuroMillions players, from Dublin and Cork, won a cool €293,221 each after matching five numbers and a lucky star – both falling one number short of hitting the mega €151,629,098 jackpot!

The winning ticket was sold at the Newsround shop in the Dunnes Shopping Centre in Tullamore, Co. Offaly and it is the fourth EuroMillions Plus to be won in Ireland so far in 2019.

The winning EuroMillions Plus numbers were: 2, 18, 32, 36 and 46.

Speaking on selling this golden ticket, store owner, Ian Kelly commented: “There is some great excitement in Tullamore this morning and the staff at the shop have been spreading the good news to our customers, encouraging them all to check their tickets. I’m delighted that we sold this winning EuroMillions prize to one of our customers and hope it brings a lot of happiness to them. Best of luck to whoever it is!”

Meanwhile, two Irish EuroMillions players went agonisingly close to winning the €151 million jackpot, falling one number short after both matched five numbers and one lucky star. The players from Dublin and Cork two will both scoop a cool €293,221 each.

These winning tickets were sold at Dunnes Stores (Grocery Kiosk) in Cornelscourt Shopping Centre, Foxrock, Dublin 18 and the other was bought at O’Riordan’s Filling Station, Lower Bluepool in Kanturk, Co. Cork.
