We are very excited to confirm that the winning EuroMillions jackpot ticket worth an astonishing €30,928,078 was sold in Siobhan and Michael Larkin’s Gala in Ballina, Killaloe, Co. Clare, and was the only winning ticket of the EuroMillions Jackpot, matching five numbers and two stars.
The winning Quick Pick ticket was sold on Sunday 6th February. The Mid-West player has officially become the 17th EuroMillions jackpot winner ever seen in Ireland.
Siobhan, who owns the business with her husband Michael, spoke of the complete shock and joy she felt on receiving the news over the weekend.
“When our visitors from the National Lottery arrived here on Sunday evening, I was totally overwhelmed and in quite a state of shock. I could not believe that it was our store that sold the winning ticket worth €30.9 million. We are coming up to 21 years in business here this March so what a way this is to mark the occasion. The vast majority of our customers are locals so we hope that the winner might be a local too and wish them all the very best with their huge win.”
“This win is going to be absolutely huge for the community. It’s become a bit of a running joke now as to where the winning ticket was actually sold because of our unique border location – was it Clare, Limerick or Tipperary? As proud Tipperary people, we’ll be claiming the win for Tipp!”
Gala stores across Ireland have been on a roll with lottery wins over the past few weeks. A remarkable €13.5 million has been won in Gala stores including De Loughrys Gala, Freshford Road, Co Kilkenny, Rogan’s Gala in Clifden, Co. Galway, Doyle’s Gala, Tullamore, Co Offaly, Murphys Gala, Raheen, New Ross, Co Wexford, Mulherns Gala in Crossmolina, Co Mayo and now Larkin’s Gala in Ballina are now all homes to winning lottery tickets.
Congratulations and best wishes to all involved!!
