We are asking all our Clare Lotto players to check their tickets carefully and if you have won this life-changing €1 million be sure to sign the back of the ticket, put the ticket in a safe place and contact our prize claims team and we will make arrangements for you to come to the National Lottery to collect your prize,” he said.

It is really good news for the town and I really do hope it is one of our local customers. I’ve no idea who the winner is – it isn’t me even though I did win €3 on the Lotto draw last night,” he said.
