Everyone at Joyce’s Supermarket is celebrating today.

THERE WAS ONE WINNER of last night’s Lotto jackpot worth over €4 million.

The Irish National Lottery advised players in Galway to check their tickets as one person who bought a ticket in that county matched all six numbers drawn.

It has since emerged that the winning ticket was sold in Joyce’s Supermarket at the Doughiska Shopping Centre. Doughiska is a suburb around 10 kilometres from Galway city centre.

The winner will claim €4,051,610.

The winning numbers were 9, 10, 34, 37, 40, 47.

Pat Joyce, who owns the supermarket it was sold in, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have sold the winning jackpot ticket and it’s fantastic news for our customers in the Doughiska community.

We’ve been spreading the good news to our locals this morning and getting them to check their Lotto tickets. Doughiska is a lovely place, one that has grown a lot in terms of population in recent years and is a multicultural town so I’m really hoping that the winner is a local.

There was also one winner of the Lotto Plus 1 jackpot, which is worth €1 million. This ticket was sold in Co Offaly. That ticket was sold in the Spar Maxol store and service station on Church Road in Tullamore.
