A shop in Meath has sold a winning EuroMillions ticket for the second time.

The Centra store in Carlanstown, County Meath, sold a Quick Pick ticket which won a customer a EuroMillions Plus top prize of €500,000 in Friday's draw.

It was the second time the Meath store has sold a winning ticket in the space of eight months.

Last August, it sold a winning EuroMillions Match 5 + Lucky Star ticket worth €436,958.

Store owner, Pat Brogan said: "This is another great win for our customers and the local community. With news of the win spreading fast throughout the locality, there is a tremendous buzz in the shop as hopeful customers come in to check their EuroMillions tickets.

"We are absolutely thrilled for the lucky winner and we wish them all the best with their new found fortune."

The winning EuroMillions Plus numbers were: 05, 09, 14, 40, 50.

Meanwhile, Saturday's Lotto jackpot heads for a whopping €11 million, following a series of rollovers since March 1 when €12.8 million was won by a syndicate from Knocklyon in Dublin.
