Ireland's newest EuroMillions winners will keep their identity secret after picking up their €15m jackpot on Friday.

The National Lottery confirmed today that the winning ticket was sold in Staunton's Costcutter Express in Castlebar, Co Mayo on 1 April.

The winners bought a €6 Quickpick selection.

A spokesperson for the National Lottery confirmed a family, who wished to remain anonymous, had picked up their winnings on Friday.

The Taoiseach has said that he hopes the winners will enjoy good fortune and happiness.

Speaking this afternoon in the shop where the winning ticket was sold, Enda Kenny said it was a life-changing amount of money and he was sure it would alter the lives of the winners.
