EuroMillions: Family syndicate wins 175m euro jackpot
A family syndicate from Dublin has come forward to claim Tuesday's EuroMillions jackpot, worth more than 175m euros (£152m).
It is the biggest jackpot claimed by an Irish ticket holder in its history.
The syndicate is from Naul, in north county Dublin, close to the border with County Meath.
A spokesperson for the winners, who is married to one of the syndicate, said in a statement that the family is "very close".
"This is unbelievable. It will take us some time to get our heads around this win and to organise ourselves," he said.
"This is a dream come true. We don't want this to change our lives.
"What is so exciting is that we will be able to share this money with children, grandchildren and extended family members."
One of the syndicate members realised their good fortune when she checked the winning ticket after Tuesday night's draw.
She said: "I heard on the RTÉ news that there was a win in Ireland and I caught the last three numbers. I checked the rest of the numbers online. I was numb! It took a bit of convincing everybody that we had won."
The family member put the winning ticket in an Argos catalogue and put it under her mattress for safe keeping. "I didn't sleep a wink all night," she added.
