A EuroMillions player in Dublin had a St Patrick’s Day to remember as they scooped €404,532 after matching five numbers and one lucky star number on Tuesday night’s EuroMillions draw (Tuesday, March 17).
The winner was one number short of scooping the entire €63,600,033 jackpot, which was won in the United Kingdom.
The National Lottery has appealed for people in Dublin to check their tickets as this golden EuroMillions ticket was sold the Tesco Liffey Valley store on the Fonthill Road, Clondalkin.
This Quick Pick ticket was sold on March 16.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “We are urging all our EuroMillions players across the country to check their tickets to see if they have won prizes as more than 42,000 Irish players won cash prizes on Tuesday night’s draw.
