It has been reported that a syndicate of Dublin Bus drivers has won the EuroMillions jackpot.

Just under €24 million was won in the draw on Friday night.

The National Lottery has confirmed the ticket was bought in Ireland, but there have been no further details released.

However it has been reported today that 22 drivers from a north Dublin bus garage are the holders of the ticket.

One of the drivers is said to have told The Sunday World: “Yeah it was us alright. We haven’t all spoken to each other yet so I’m not even sure how much we will walk away with.”

Neither Dublin Bus nor the National Lottery can confirm the reports - with the Lotto saying the claims process can only begin when they reopen tomorrow morning.

It is understood nobody has come forward to claim the prize as of yet.

The numbers drawn were 2, 11, 13, 40 and 50 and the Lucky Stars were 1 and 10.

Nine EuroMillions jackpots have been won in Ireland since 2004.
