An Irish person has scooped a whopping Euromillions prize this evening.

The lucky person has won a massive €66,188,316, becoming Ireland's seventh Euromillions winner and the country's third highest win.

They are sharing the top prize with a share from a jackpot of just over €132m, with a winner from France.

The prize was won with a match of five numbers and two lucky stars.

The winning numbers are 1, 5, 23, 29, 32 and the lucky stars are 1 and 7.

The individual now has 90 days to bring their golden ticket to the National Lottery Headquarters on Lower Abbey Street in Dublin.

There are no clues as to where the ticket was bought yet, but the winner is not obliged to go public.

Tonight's draw was the 872nd Euromillions draw.

And it was a case of the lucky Irish as two others have scooped a more modest prize of €4,209 each with a match of four numbers and two lucky stars each.

A total of 137 other Irish people won a prize worth more than €100 each.

Limerick woman Dolores McNamara remains one of the largest individual prizewinners in European lottery history – she won over €115 million in 2005 with a €2 quickpick ticket.
