The news comes after lottery bosses announced the location of Wednesday night’s lottery jackpot worth a whopping €11,106,436.
The family-run local shop in Foynes in Co Limerick rejoiced on Friday after receiving the happy news that they had indeed sold the life-changing ticket.
On the day of the draw, Wednesday January 4th, the lucky player purchased their Quick Pick ticket from Kelly’s Costcutter.
Located on Main Street in the heart of Foynes town, Kelly’s Costcutter is run by sibling duo Eoin and Trisha, who took over the business from parents Vincent and Breda in 2018.
Discussing the big win, co-owner Trisha said; “Honestly, we just can’t believe it! We heard the news on Thursday morning that the winning ticket had been sold in Limerick but we didn’t know it was in our shop.
“With excitement, we frantically checked our own tickets, but unfortunately it wasn’t us.
“A few hours later I got a call from the National Lottery saying we had sold the winning ticket and to hear those words – it was the next best thing to winning the jackpot – it’s amazing!”
The Kelly Family is no stranger to seeing their customers enjoying great lottery success after winning €9.6 million in EuroMillions in their shop in 2006.
“Big lottery wins are always a huge boost to local businesses and their communities, and Foynes is no different.
“When we had the big EuroMillions win in 2006 it was literally all the local community could talk about for months and it was just fantastic.
“We’re a tightly knit area here and I would guess the majority of our customers are local. I know that the entire community will be delighted with whoever the winner is.”
