A family-run service station in Co Tipperary has been announced as the location where Friday's EuroMillions jackpot ticket worth €30,928,078 was sold.

Larkin's Gala Service Station in Ballina sold the quick-pick ticket on Sunday 6 February.

Siobhan Larkin, who owns the businesses with her husband Michael, said she was "totally overwhelmed" by the news.

"When our visitors from the National Lottery arrived here on Sunday evening, I was totally overwhelmed and in quite a state of shock. I couldn't believe that it was our store that sold the winning ticket," she said.

"The vast majority of our customers are locals so we hope that the winner might be a local too and wish them all the very best with their huge win," she added.

The shop is located near the borders of Clare, Limerick and Tipperary.

"This win is going to be absolutely huge for the community. It's become a bit of a running joke now as to where the winning ticket was actually sold because of our unique border location – was it Clare, Limerick or Tipperary? As proud Tipperary people, we'll be claiming the win for Tipp!" she said.

The winning ticket holder has officially become the 17th EuroMillions jackpot winner ever seen in Ireland.

The National Lottery is urging players to check their tickets "very carefully".

The winner is advised to sign the back of their ticket and to keep it in a safe place before contacting the National Lottery prize claims team.
