The Lotto jackpot is worth €12,747,756 and will be split into two, with each winner taking home €6,373,878.
Which winning stores sold the lucky tickets? One of them was sold at Tuthills Newsagents in the Golden Island Shopping Centre in Athlone, while the other at McCarron’s Village Shop in Quigley’s Point on the eastern shores of Inishowen, Co. Donegal.
