The winners of last month's EuroMillions jackpot worth €88.5 million have collected their prize.

The winning ticket was sold in the Applegreen service station in Lusk, North County Dublin ahead of the draw on Tuesday January 24th.

It has been confirmed the prize was won by a work syndicate, although the winners are choosing to remain anonymous.

A spokesperson for the syndicate said: "We are absolutely delighted. We all have bills to pay with mortgages, loans and whatnot so we are looking forward to the financial freedom that comes with a win of this magnitude.

"We will be having a quiet party with family and friends to celebrate our good fortune. We will not be getting carried away with our win and we will return to normal everyday life as soon as possible."

The spokesperson added: "We’re looking forward to enjoying the win with our families and we might indulge by booking our sun holidays in the next couple of days."
