Family scoop €9m Lotto win -- 17th biggest

A FAMILY has picked up a cheque for nearly €9m -- the 17th biggest jackpot win in the National Lottery's history.

The family syndicate, who wish to keep their win private, will share the jackpot equally.

The winning ticket, an €8 Quick Pick, was purchased at a newsagent in Abbeyleix, Co Laois, on August 29.

It was the first Lotto jackpot-winning ticket to be sold by the shop, Moran's, in the town's Main Street.

"I always buy a Quick Pick for the Lotto," smiled a syndicate member.

"I can't believe I've finally won -- it's fantastic to be able to share my good fortune with my family."

The delighted syndicate do not have any plans for the winnings as yet but intend to enjoy it.
