Blackwater shop sells €500,000 EuroMillions ticket

 

A South-East Clare shop owner got his holidays off to the perfect start after selling the winning €500,000 EuroMillions Plus ticket in Sunday night’s bumper €190 million draw.
Lance O’Neill, owner of Barrys Mace in Blackwater, Ardnacrusha, had just started a family holiday near Barcelona in Spain when he learned one of his customers is a half a million Euros richer.
Ironically the jackpot winning ticket from last night’s mega €190 million EuroMillions Jackpot was actually sold in Spain.
“How ironic is that. I can confirm that I did not buy a EuroMillions ticket here so I am not the Spanish jackpot winner,” laughed Lance.
Lance has owned his shop in the small South-East Clare community for 13 years. He sold a quarter of a million Euro winning Lotto ticket nine years ago.
“It’s a small village and it would be lovely if it was somebody local who has won. But it could also have been anybody driving through going to East Clare. I look forward to celebrating with staff and locals when I get home next week,” he said.
There was huge excitement around Ireland as the EuroMillions jackpot was worth €190 million.
