There is intense excitement and speculation in Slane today with the news that the winning ticket for last night’s €6,496,218 National Lottery jackpot was sold in Mimnagh’s shop.
Peter Fleming, who runs the shop with his wife Irene Mimnagh Fleming, said they are delighted to have sold a jackpot winning ticket, but they have no idea who the winner is.
“There have been people in and out all day, wondering and speculating, but we don’t know who it is.
“We hope it is somebody local and they enjoy it and have the health to enjoy it,” he said.
“It is our first jackpot win and it is great for the area.”
The winning ticket was a €12 multi-draw ticket sold on Tuesday evening to one lucky winner.
The winning numbers were 8, 9, 14, 15, 42, 44 and the bonus number was 36.
