Unclaimed €1 Million EuroMillions Prize Causes Stir in Cork

The National Lottery has issued an urgent appeal to the residents of Cork, specifically to those who recently purchased tickets for the ‘Ireland Only Raffle’ held as part of the special EuroMillions draw on Friday night. A life-altering sum of €1 million awaits one lucky ticket holder who, as of now, remains blissfully unaware of their good fortune.

The winning ticket was sold at Corcoran’s Centra, a local, family-run store in Cobh, County Cork. This special draw generated ten raffle codes, each valued at €5,000. These ten codes were then entered into a subsequent draw to determine the €1 million winner, making one Cork player’s prize amount a staggering €1,005,000.

The winning Ireland Only Raffle code, I-QQN-12284, was the key to this massive fortune, but the winner has yet to come forward. Alan Corcoran, the owner of Corcoran’s Centra, was enthused upon receiving the news, stating that this was the largest win ever associated with his store.

“I’m absolutely delighted, I cannot put into words what this means for us! It’s our first big win in the store and we just hope it’s one of our loyal regular customers. We’re definitely going to share this joy with our hardworking staff and give them a little treat. They’re honestly such a mighty bunch, and we’re looking forward to celebrating with them. We’re also looking forward to the buzz this will create over the next couple of days, and we wish the winner every best with their prize,” Corcoran shared.

In the wake of this news, the National Lottery is urging all players who purchased their tickets in Cobh for Friday’s draw to double-check their numbers and sign the back of their tickets immediately. Players are also advised to reach out to the prize claims team by calling 1800 666 222 or by sending an email to [email protected] to begin the process of claiming their winnings.

Sarah Ruane, a spokesperson for the National Lottery, emphasized the magnitude of this win and reinforced the call to action for the people of Cork.
