The syndicate that won last week’s €29m EuroMillions jackpot has collected its prize in Dublin.

The group, who do not want to go public, travelled from the west of the country to claim the prize.

The Quick Pick ticket was sold at the Garryduff XL Store, of Pound Road, Castlebar, Co Mayo on 6 July.

The group realised that they had won the prize when one of the syndicate members checked the EuroMillions numbers. The rest of the syndicate were then informed.

One member of the syndicate said: "It has been a roller coaster week with lots of butterflies in our stomachs and lots of different emotions. But we are keeping level heads and we will try to take it all in and we will give it time before we decide what to do with our winnings."

National Lottery Chief Executive, Dermot Griffin said: "We always love seeing happy winners come into our winner's room here in National Lottery headquarters. It is important these winners take the time and space to let the news sink in.

"This is an incredible amount of money to win, and we have recommended that the winners get independent financial and legal advice."
