East Clare shop sells €500,000 EuroMillions ticket

An East Clare grocery shop owner got his holidays off to the perfect start when he got a phone call to say he had sold a winning €500,000 EuroMillions Plus ticket in last night’s bumper €190 million draw.

Lance O’Neill, owner of Barrys Mace in Blackwater, Ardnacrusha, had just started a family holiday near Barcelona in Spain when he learned one of his customers is a half a million Euros richer.

And ironically the jackpot winning ticket from last night’s mega €190 million EuroMillions Jackpot was actually sold in Spain!

“How ironic is that. I can confirm that I did not buy a EuroMillions ticket here so I am not the Spanish jackpot winner!” laughed Lance.

Lance has owned his shop in the tiny Co. Clare community for 13 years. He sold a quarter of a million Euro winning Lotto ticket nine years ago.

“It’s a small village and it would be lovely if it was somebody local who has won. But it could also have been anybody driving through going to East Clare. I look forward to celebrating with staff and locals when I get home next week.”
