Ticketholder in Ireland claims 66 million euro share of EuroMillions jackpot


A ticketholder in Ireland has come forward to claim a 66 million euro (£50 million) share of Friday's EuroMillions jackpot.

The claimant has been in contact with the National Lottery in Ireland to say that they have the ticket, but still has to attend the headquarters in person to officially claim the prize.

They have 90 days from the date of the draw in which to do so.

A spokeswoman for the National Lottery in Dublin said: "They have been in contact with National Lottery HQ just to say 'we have got the winning ticket, we would like to come in and claim it'."

The massive jackpot prize was shared between two winning tickets, with the other winner coming from France.

The winning numbers were 01, 05, 23, 29, 32 and the lucky stars were 01 and 07.

Six UK tickets matched five main numbers and one lucky star to each win £303,465.20.
