Twenty-two Dublin Bus drivers have collected their winnings from the National Lottery.

The group – who have 700 years of service between them – collected over €1m each after sharing a Euromillions jackpot of €23,845,060 from last Friday’s draw.

The lucky ticket was sold in O’Hanlon’s Spar Shop on Station Road, Portarlington.

Five of the winners turned up for their usual Monday morning shift this week.

Twenty of the men are senior drivers, while one is an inspector and another has retired.

Dave Doherty and John Brady were asked what they would spend their winnings on.

The winners were, quite literally, unveiled at National Lottery headquarters.
