The winning Quick Pick ticket was bought in Talty’s Mace Circle K in Lisseycasey in Co. Clare, village with a population of approximately 400 people.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “We can confirm that we have been contacted by the lucky ticketholder and arrangements are currently being made for the claim to be made once restrictions are lifted due to the on-going public health emergency. We cannot wait to welcome the fifth Lotto jackpot winner of the year to the National Lottery Winner’s Room when it is safer to do so”.
