THEY were just one number short of winning a jaw-dropping €185m lottery jackpot, however, a Dublin family are still thrilled with their €4.5m "consolation" prize.

The family, who wish to remain anonymous, collected their cheque for €4,576,071 after matching five numbers plus one Lucky Star in the EuroMillions draw last Friday.

"We were just one number away from €185m but that's fine with us. We're delighted with €4.5m," said one of the winners.

The winning ticket was a €12 Quick Pick and was bought in a Londis shop in Ballyfermot.

Meanwhile, the winners of the jackpot said they planned to travel the world.
