The €88.5m winning EuroMillions ticket was sold in Applegreen motorway services station on the M1 northbound in Lusk, Co Dublin.

It was announced yesterday that the ticket was sold in Dublin, but the National Lottery has now narrowed it down to the seller.

The winner of the prize has already been in contact with the National Lottery.

There was one winner of this week's jackpot, which is worth €88,587,275.

Tuesday's winning numbers were 1, 5, 7, 17, 23 with the lucky stars 3 and 8. 

It is the third EuroMillions jackpot win in Ireland in the last year, while the lucky winners will pick up the third-largest EuroMillions prize ever won in Ireland.

Joe Barratt is the chief operations manager for Applegreen, and spoke to Newstalk Breakfast about the win.

"We've got customers coming here and travelling down to Dublin Airport to go on holidays... their commute to Belfast," he explained.

"We don't actually where the customer's from, and we sell a lot of tickets. So that's still unknown to us - it's still a secret."

National Lottery Chief Executive Dermot Griffin said: “We are delighted to see another EuroMillions jackpot win in Ireland.  EuroMillions continues to capture the imagination of our players and you never know, we could have another lucky jackpot winner tonight, with a guaranteed jackpot of €17m”.
