EUROMILLIONS fever has struck in Limerick again after a winning ticket was sold in the city for the second time in less than a month.

EUROMILLIONS fever has struck in Limerick again after a winning ticket was sold in the city for the second time in less than a month.

The lucky holder of a €3 Quickpick ticket, which was bought yesterday afternoon, is set to walk away with €468,877 in prize money following last night’s Euromillions draw.

A spokesperson for the National Lottery confirmed the winning “match five plus one” ticket was bought at Gleeson’s Spar, Henry Street hours before the draw, which had a top prize of €15 million.

The identity of the winner remains a mystery this evening and the spokesperson for the National Lottery says it had not been contacted by the winner.

Mike Gleeson, owner of the Spar shop on Henry Street says he is thrilled for winner - whoever they are. “The National Lottery rep was onto me early his morning to tell me that we had sold a five plus one winning ticket. There were just two of them in Europe and it is fantastic news and it is good for the shop and it is good for Limerick,” he told the Limerick Leader.

Earlier this month, Garryowen woman Susan Bailey won €875,321 in the Euromillions when she bought a €9 Quickpick ticket at Tierney’s Roxboro Stores.
