Thurles Strikes Gold Again With Another Big Win.


The winners of a €17 million jackpot in last night’s EuroMillions are involved in a syndicate from Stakelum’s Home and Hardware in Thurles. They also purchased their Quick Pick ticket at the Eason store in the Thurles Shopping Centre.

The National Lottery this afternoon confirmed that contact has been made from the 32-person-strong syndicate, meaning that each member will take away €531,000.  The shop that sold the ticket also sold a €7.5 million Lotto jackpot-winning ticket last October.

Thurles has had several other big National Lottery wins in recent months:
In April 2018, a syndicate collected a cheque for €250,000 after winning the Lotto Plus 2 top prize on a ticket sold at the Centra Store in Stadavoher, Thurles.

In March 2018, a scratch card paying out €500,000 was sold at Sheedy’s Centra Store; while in December 2017 McKevitts Costcutters Store on Friars Street sold a €500,000 Lotto Plus 1 winning ticket.

In December 2017 there were also two separate scratch card wins of €250,000 and €100,000 bought in shops in Thurles.
