Issues surrounding an €8.2m Lotto jackpot won in March have been resolved and the logistics for paying the prize money to the winners are being finalised.

The ticket was bought at the Stop and Shop store on Sligo's Stephen Street on 5 March.

It was reported on Wednesday that the prize money had still had not been paid out, leading to rumours circulating as to the nature of the delay.

However, Tony McLynn, a solicitor representing the winners, said these rumours were exaggerated.

Speaking on RTÉ's News at One, Mr McLynn said a matter of clarification was sought and the issue was ultimately resolved.

While he said it was obviously a good outcome and everyone was happy it is resolved, his clients had some issue with the process.

He said his clients were "a bit disappointed that the risk of confidentiality wasn't adhered to."

Mr McLynn said the winners felt that by indicating there were issues regarding the payout, the National Lottery served to fuel the rumour mill.

While reiterating that they were happy with the outcome, he said they felt more consideration might be given to security concerns and safety issues around such rumours.
