THERE WAS ONE winner of last night’s Lotto jackpot, worth a hefty €8,549,067.

The National Lottery said this morning that the ticket was sold at the Corrib Oil Service Station in The Hill, Loughrea. It’s Galway’s 93rd Lotto jackpot win since 1988.

The winning numbers were 5, 6, 14, 19, 22, 30 and the bonus number was 24.

There were three players who just missed out, getting five of the numbers and the bonus. Each of those will get €41,933.

Pat Halligan, the store manager at the service station, that the “excitement is unreal” in the town today.

He said: “There is a great buzz in the shop today with people coming in checking their tickets and speculating about the winner. This is the biggest ever National Lottery win for this shop and we would love if it was a local.

This is a busy store with more than 30 full and part-time staff and we are in party mode today. The staff were told the great news last night by WhatsApp so there is a carnival atmosphere here.
