Punters may now know the shop that sold the €66m EuroMillions ticket - but we are still none the wiser when it comes to knowing the identity of the winners.
The ticket was sold in the Easons store in the Fairgreen Shopping Centre, Carlow, and its co-owner Eoin Hennigan said he has been receiving lots of congratulations from customers since the news broke.
The lucky ticket was sold on January 27, and a syndicate of friends - who have remained anonymous - claimed their prize at National Lottery offices in Dublin on Thursday.
Mr Hennigan (41) said that everybody is hoping it is locals who won the massive prize. "I am absolutely hoping it's a local. It would be a great boost to the economy, and it's good for the area, and it's good for the shopping centre.
"The winners want to remain anonymous, and we have to respect that. We can't even speculate," he added.
