Irish winner in euromillions

One lucky Irish punter won €275,300 in the massive euromillions draw last night.

The ticket was one of 16 winning ones sold across Europe which matched five numbers and one star.

But the big prize of €141m eluded everybody who bought tickets for the draw. Nobody managed to match five numbers and two stars.

This means that the jackpot for Tuesday's euromillions draw is now heading for a whopping €150m, which is likely to see a massive splurge on tickets here.

The winning numbers in last night's draw were: 14, 15, 21, 23, 48 and the lucky stars were 2 and 10.
