The National Lottery has confirmed that the winning ticketholder of last Saturday night’s €5,325,592 Lotto Jackpot ticket sold in Innishannon has made contact.

The winning Quick Pick ticket was sold on the day of the draw (Saturday 21st September) at the Centra store on the Main Street, Innishannon.

This latest win in the Rebel County is the 7th Lotto jackpot winner of 2019 and the 175th Lotto jackpot to be won in Cork in the history of the game. These lucky Cork jackpot winners have shared more than €263m between them, since 1988. 

A National Lottery spokesperson said: 'We can confirm that we have been contacted this morning by the lucky ticketholder and arrangements are currently being made for the claim to be made when the winner is ready to collect their prize in the coming weeks.'
