Thurles lotto syndicate win mega €17.4 million 07.06.18

THE National Lottery has confirmed that a ticket held by a shop syndicate in Thurles, Co. Tipperary, has been verified as the winner of Tuesday night’s mega €17 million EuroMillions jackpot.
A spokesperson said today: “We can now confirm that the ticket held by the Stakelum’s Hardware Syndicate in Thurles, Co. Tipperary, has been verified as winner of Tuesday night's EuroMillions jackpot and arrangements are being made for the group to make their claim in the next week.”
A spokesperson for the 32 member syndicate spoke of the shock and delight of the group at their mammoth win with each member's share worth just over €540,000.
“We simply can’t believe it. We are all in shock but absolutely delighted and it is great to see this massive amount of money shared with so many colleagues. We all get more than half a million Euros each which is a lovely amount of money. We need some time to let this sink in and we look forward to going to Lotto HQ in the next week or so to get the cheque!”
Meanwhile there were great celebrations in the Eason store in Thurles shopping Centre in Co. Tipperary, which may well be the luckiest shop in Ireland after selling Tuesday’s mega €17 million EuroMillions jackpot ticket. Just eight months after selling a €7.5 million Lotto winner!
National Lottery CEO, Dermot Griffin, today congratulated the Stakelum’s Syndicate on its life-changing win. And Eason for selling two jackpot winning tickets in such quick succession.
“This is terrific news we are thrilled for the syndicate members, and for Thurles which has become a very lucky National Lottery town. It is always nice to see a mega jackpot like this shared amongst several people. We look forward to welcoming the happy group in the National Lottery Winner’s Room next week.”
