Larkin’s Gala in Ballina, Co. Clare has been confirmed as the selling location for Friday night’s winning EuroMillions ticket. Sold on 6 February, the owner of the winning Quick Pick ticket scooped a whopping €30,928,078 prize jackpot.

The ticket buyer has been announced as the sole winner of the EuroMillions Jackpot, matching five numbers and two stars making them Ireland’s latest multimillionaire after winning the life-changing amount.

“When our visitors from the National Lottery arrived here on Sunday evening, I was totally overwhelmed and in quite a state of shock,” said Siobhan Larkin, store owner of Larkin’s Gala in Ballina. “I couldn’t believe that it was our store that sold the winning ticket worth €30.9 million. We are coming up to 21 years in business here this March so what a way this is to mark the occasion. The vast majority of our customers are locals so we hope that the winner might be a local too and wish them all the very best with their huge win.

“This win is going to be absolutely huge for the community. It’s become a bit of a running joke now as to where the winning ticket was actually sold, because of Ballina’s unique border location – was it Clare, Limerick or Tipperary? As proud Tipperary people, we’ll be claiming the win for Tipp!”

This is not the first Euromillions winner to have purchased a winning lottery ticket from a Gala store. Since 2020, more than €45 million of prize money has been claimed by winners who purchased their winning tickets at Gala stores including Rogan’s Gala in Clifden, Co. Galway (€7.3 million); DeLoughry’s Gala, Talbot’s Inch, Kilkenny (€5.4 million); Doyle’s Gala, Tullamore, Offaly (€25,000); Gala Bosheen, Wexford (€500,000);  Mulhern’s Gala, Crossmolina, Mayo (€305,000); Minahan’s Gala, Clonakilty, Cork (€1 million) and now Larkin’s Gala in Ballina, Co. Clare (€30.9 million).
