Irish winner lands €12.5m in EuroMillions

IT appears lady luck really does strike twice.

For the second time in recent weeks, a EuroMillions lottery jackpot has landed in Ireland.

The winner will share last night's €25.6m jackpot with a player in Spain, taking home a cheque for €12,801,474.

The winning numbers were 11, 23, 25, 32, 37, and the lucky stars were 4 and 7.

National Lottery bosses urged the winner to immediately sign the back of the ticket and keep it in a safe place.

However, Lotto chiefs were keeping quiet on the exact location of the retail outlet that sold the lucky ticket.

There was also a winning ticket sold for the EuroMillions Plus top prize of €500,000.

More than 30c of every euro spent on EuroMillions goes to good causes in Ireland.
