"The shop is getting a bit busy now and everyone is wondering if the winner is a local or was just someone passing through."

Another €4 quick pick was the successful sole winner of the €350,000 Lotto plus 1 draw.

The ticket was bought in Treacy’s Service Station in Portarlington, Co. Laois yesterday.

There was no winner of the Lotto Plus 2 draw.
