“We are encouraging all our EuroMillions players in Louth and Cork to check their tickets carefully this morning to see if you are half a million euro better off.”
“If you are one of the winners we advise you to sign the back of the ticket, put it in a safe place and contact our prize claims team on 01 836 4444, and we will make arrangements for you to come to the National Lottery to collect your prize”.
