The winner of a €38.9m Euromillions jackpot has made contact with the National Lottery.

It has been revealed that the winning ticket was sold in Dublin.

The quick pick ticket was bought on Friday, December 29th for last Friday's draw.

This is the third Euromillions jackpot won in Ireland in 2017 - and the 12th since Euromillions began in 2004.

The winning numbers are: 04,08,22,23,48 and Lucky Stars: 01,12.

A National Lottery spokesperson said: "We are still processing this fantastic win but we are delighted to confirm the ticket was a quick pick and was purchased in the Dublin region.

"Full details will follow once we contact the winning store and arrangements are in place.

"What a great way for a player to start the New Year. 2017 was very lucky for our Euromillions players with a record three Jackpot wins and 31 Euromillion Plus wins of €500,000 each."

It is not known if it is a single winner or a syndicate.

No further details are known about the winner at this stage but the National Lottery says arrangements are being made.
