Clock is ticking for Cork player to claim €50,000 EuroMillions prize ahead of claims deadline

Cork retailer urges his customers to check their tickets with just days left to claim their prize

A EuroMillions player in the Turners Cross area of Cork city has just two days left to claim their ‘Ireland Only Raffle’ prize worth a whopping €50,000.

The National Lottery is continuing to appeal to EuroMillions players in the area to check their old tickets from Tuesday 13th December’s draw. The winning Normal Play ticket was purchased on Sunday 11th December at O’Hare’s Mace at Turners Cross in Cork City. 

Fergus O’Hare, Group Operations Manager of O’Hare’s Mace store in Turners Cross in Cork City has been calling on his customers to check their tickets ahead of Wednesday’s (15th March) deadline. 

“It’s a popular local shop on the outskirts of Cork City and we’re confident that the vast majority of our customers are from the local community. There was great excitement locally when the prize was originally won back in December so its surprising that it still hasn’t been claimed after all this time. There isn’t a person in the county who doesn’t know about this unclaimed prize. It’s all everybody is talking about at the moment. We’ll be doing our utmost in the store in the next few days to ensure that everybody in the area will check their old tickets to see if they are the winner of the €50,000 prize,” he said.
