A delighted Petrogas manager, Carol Cuddy, today told of  how news of the win has gripped the small town in Co. Laois:

I think the whole town has already been through the doors of the shop this morning checking their tickets, there’s a great buzz in the community so we’ll enjoy the celebrations! We do get a lot of passing traffic but we are very hopeful that the winner is a local,” she said.

The winning EuroMillions Plus numbers are: 11, 16, 18, 28, 35
