THE OWNER OF a winning EuroMillions ticket worth €38.9 million has been in touch with the National Lottery.

The quick pick ticket was bought in Dublin last Friday.

This is the third EuroMillions jackpot won in Ireland in 2017 and the 12th since the game began in 2004.

The winning numbers were 04,08,22,23,48 and  the lucky stars were 01 and 12.

A National Lottery spokeswoman said the ticket for the draw on Friday was sold in the Dublin region.

We are still processing this fantastic win but we are delighted to confirm the ticket was a quick pick and was purchased in the Dublin region.

“Full details will follow once we contact the winning store and arrangements are in place. What a great way for a player to start the New Year. 2017 was very lucky for our EuroMillions players with a record three Jackpot wins and 31 EuroMillion Plus wins of €500,000 each.”
