The lottery just made a couple of dozen people very happy! A group of workers from Wicklow managed to get a 5 number and one lucky star match to share a prize of €156,002.
All 24 members of the syndicate are grateful for this early bonus two months before Christmas. Some said they will help children pay college loans, some wanted to buy a new car and many said this will spice up their Christmas and New Year celebrations for this year. Each member stands to receive about €6,500.
They bought the winning quick pick ticket from Dunnes Stores in the Bridgewater Centre in Arklow.
