Store Manager Joe Lynch said it was a big surprise when he got the call about the big win: “We are currently in the middle of our busiest time of the year with lots of seasonal holiday makers as well as locals shopping in-store with us on a daily basis. It’s always great to get good news but particularly so when it’s peak season. I’m sure there will be lots of speculation and customers eager to check their tickets as soon as word gets out that we sold the winning ticket. We have over 70 staff members and even amongst the team, they will be thrilled to hear the news. It’s great for the community as well as of course for the winner themselves. The entire town will be celebrating the big win and joining in on the excitement, I’m sure!”

The National Lottery are continuing to urge Galway Lotto players to check their tickets carefully from Wednesday night as Ireland’s newest millionaire is yet to make contact. The winner is advised to sign the back of their ticket and keep it safe. They should make contact with the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email mailto:claims@lottery.ie and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prize.
