A lucky Lotto player from Limerick is €4.3m richer after winning the jackpot on Saturday night.

Players from Leitrim and Louth also won €106,121 each in what the National Lottery is calling "a bumper weekend".

The winning €4.3m Quick Pick Lotto ticket was sold at Whitty’s Mace supermarket in Caherdavin, Co Limerick.

Shop owner, DJ Whitty, said: "I cannot believe it. When the call came through last night I was in shock.

"This is the second Lotto jackpot winning ticket we've sold in our 21 years in business here.

"It is fantastic for the town of Caherdavin and there’s a great buzz around the town this morning. I’ve no idea who the winner is but we hope it is one of our local customers."

The National Lottery is appealing to players to check their tickets.

The winning numbers were: 1, 7, 10, 17, 35, 37 and bonus number was 63.

CEO of the National Lottery, Dermot Griffin, said: "What a June Bank Holiday weekend it has been for our players with the National Lottery giving away €6m.

"This latest €4.3 million Lotto jackpot win is our fifth of 2018.
