Residents in the Rochestown area of Cork city are being urged to check their Daily Million tickets after the top prize of €1 million was sold in the area.
The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased on Wednesday at Murphy’s Centra in Rochestown.
Store owner Terry Murphy said that the good news was needed at a time when conversation has been surrounding the current Covid-19 pandemic.
He said that people in the area will “have something new and exciting to talk about now”.
He said that knowing one of his customers has a massive smile on their face with a €1 million ticket in their hand is “absolutely priceless”.
“As a local retailer, my only priority is the safety of my customers and my employees. With the help of our store manager, Mary McGroarty and all of the wonderful staff, we have worked tirelessly to install systems in the shop to ensure we are operating in an environment that protects everybody while providing essential services to our customers.
“With this €1 million Daily Million win, it really is an extra bonus knowing that our efforts have been even more worthwhile with somebody, possibly in the locality becoming a millionaire overnight. We certainly wish them all the very best with their win," he said.
The winning numbers from Wednesday’s 2pm Daily Million Draw were: 05, 18, 30, 35, 36, 38 and the bonus number was 08.
The National Lottery is now appealing to all its Daily Million players in Rochestown to check their tickets after they matched all six lucky numbers in Wednesday’s draw.
All National Lottery winners can still claim their prizes despite recent operational changes made to the prize claims procedures in light of recent government and HSE recommendations related to Covid-19.
