Lucky Co Mayo Shop Sells €13.7 Million Irish Lotto Ticket

Last Updated: Monday 25th January 2016, 10:05 am

Saturday’s winning Irish Lotto ticket, worth €13.7 million, was sold at a newsagents in Belmullet, Co Mayo where two six-figure sums have been scooped previously. Lorraine O’Connor, who runs Carey’s Newsagent’s and Bookshop, told the Irish Times “we had a €500,000 win in the EuroMillions lottery last August and, two years ago, a customer won €350,000 on Lotto Plus,” as she and her staff celebrated their as-yet-unidentified customer’s good fortune with champagne on Sunday.

The Irish Lotto results for Saturday 23rd January were 10, 12, 13, 19, 43 and 45 with Bonus Ball 5 and, in addition to the eight-figure jackpot win, other prizes ranged from a €3 scratchcard for matching two main numbers and the Bonus Ball up to €145,229 for matching five main numbers and the Bonus Ball. Take a look at the full Irish Lotto prize breakdown, along with the details of Lotto Plus 1, Lotto Plus 2 and Lotto Plus Raffle, at the Lottery Results section.

Lottery officials had expected excited punters to snap up two million tickets in advance of the big-money draw, with 1,800 per minute being sold in the final hour. Lorraine O’Connor confirmed she had been called by National Lottery headquarters on Saturday night to tell her that a four-line Quick Pick worth €10, purchased on her premises, had matched all six main numbers.

Belmullet, with around 1,000 residents, has had more than its fair share of Lotto luck, with Annette Howard, who owns a Eurospar in the coastal town, confirming that her shop sold an €11.8 million-winning entry three years previously.

Wednesday’s jackpot will now reset to €2 million and you can buy Irish Lotto tickets online at the Buy Tickets page or from authorised retailers across Ireland.
