Lucky Laois Player Waking Up €250,000 Richer This Morning

They may not have scooped the big jackpot, but it's a nice boost to the bank account!

One person in Laois is waking up €250,000 richer this morning.

The winning ticket for the Lotto Plus 2 prize last night was sold in the Corrib Oil service station in Fairgreen, Portlaoise.

The lucky Laois winner is warned they may get a fright when checking their ticket, according to the National Lottery.

Spokesperson Sarah Orr says they're ready and waiting for the winner to get in touch:


While we're likely to find out later where the lucky ticket for the €12.7 million jackpot was sold.

There was one winner for the jackpot, which is the biggest in four years.
