Ireland's latest EuroMillions jackpot winner has made contact with the National Lottery to confirm their €29 million win.

Speculation over the identity of the winner is only set to continue, however, as the National Lottery will not be revealing their name, the location of the ticket sale or any other details at this stage.

“We want to give the winner time and space to make arrangements and to let the news sink in. The name of the winning shop will be made known in the next day or so,” said a National Lottery spokesperson.

Dermot Griffin from the National Lottery told RTÉ Radio One that the winner will be able to collect the massive sum from Wednesday evening on. They have 90 days from the time of the draw to collect their winnings.

Mr Griffin explained the money first has to be collected from the other countries involved in the lottery.

This is Ireland's 11th EuroMillions Jackpot winner and second in 2017 with a Dublin syndicate scooping an €88.5 million jackpot in January.
