We can reveal that the winning Euromillions ticket was sold in Lifford

The EuroMillions lotto ticket worth half a million euro was sold at the McGettigan's Applegreen Service Station in Lifford. 

Lifford is no stranger to National Lottery luck as the town had a €4.4 million Lotto jackpot win last January.

The winning ticket was the only match five in the Euromillions Plus draw in the country last night.

The numbers drawn last night were 16, 28, 29, 30 and 36.

The owner McGettigan’s Applegreen Store in Lifford, Conor McGettigan, said:“We are currently celebrating two years in business and what a way to mark our two year anniversary with a half a million euro win for our customers. It’s our first big National Lottery win so it’s all very exciting for us in the store this morning. Have no doubt about it, this is truly life-changing for somebody in Lifford Town. We’ll be celebrating throughout the day and we’ll certainly be reminding each and everyone in the store to check their tickets and claim this wonderful prize.”

The National Lottery is now encouraging all of its players in Donegal to check their EuroMillions tickets carefully. A spokesperson said:“Our EuroMillions players are really on a roll at the moment and last night’s Plus winner was our 19th top prize winner of €500,000 this year. If you are this lucky ticket holder, be sure to sign the back of the ticket and contact our prize claims team on 01 836 4444 and we will make arrangements for you to come to the National Lottery Winner’s Room to get your prize”.
