It's a remarkable National Lottery story unlikely to ever be repeated in the county.

In the space of just 50 days, two shops in Glenbeigh and Killarney respectively sold two winning National Lottery tickets apiece: three EuroMillion Plus €500,000 winners and, to top it all off, a €9.7m lotto jackpot, the largest prize ever won in the county.

To add even further intrigue, it appeared for a while that all four prizes might go unclaimed.
