CORK’S latest millionaire, who bought their winning Lotto ticket in O’Connell’s Foodstore in Myrtleville last Saturday (May 29th) has yet to make contact with Lotto bosses to claim their prize of €2,469,871.

Excitement reached fever pitch on Tuesday morning when it was revealed that the shop near Myrtleville beach sold the winning ticket on the day of the draw. Paul O’Connell, owner, said he will never forget the call from Lotto HQ. ‘I reckon as soon as word starts to spread, there will be great excitement around,’ he said.
