It’s not yet known whether the ticket belongs to an individual or a syndicate.

IT’S EMERGED THAT last night’s lucky Lotto ticket was sold in Crosshaven in Co Cork.

There was just one winner of last night’s €5.6 million Lotto jackpot.

The main prize hasn’t been won since 21 February, meaning the amount on offer has increased in recent weeks.

The owner of the winning Centra Store in Crosshaven, Bernard Lynch said he is delighted at the news that his store had sold the winning ticket.

“What a win for the people of Crosshaven!

He said that after getting a call from the National Lottery, he told his staff on Saturday night just before the shop before they closed and “they went absolutely wild”.

We have a very close-knit community in Crosshaven so we know our customers very well. The majority are local but the town of Crosshaven is a beautiful maritime sailing port which attracts a lot of visitors.

“Whoever the winner is, we are absolutely delighted for them and we wish them every bit of luck. If the winner of the life-changing sum happens to be one of our neighbours or friends, it’ll be all the sweeter.”

If you bought your ticket at the Lynch’s Centra store in Crosshaven, you may want to check your numbers.

Those winning numbers are: 

2, 17, 24, 25, 35 and 40.

The bonus number is 36.
