One lucky Irish winner has scooped the EuroMillions jackpot worth €17m.

The winning numbers drawn were 9, 15, 22, 39, 46 and the Lucky Stars were 4 and 5.

A spokeswoman for the National Lottery said there was "great excitement" following the win.

She said that there was no indication yet as to where in the country the ticket was sold.

There are also no details yet as to whether it was a single player or a syndicate who bought the ticket.

This is the first EuroMillions jackpot win in Ireland this year.

Last December, a EuroMillions winning ticket worth €38m was sold in Dublin.

It is the 13th Irish EuroMillions winner since the draw began in 2004.

The National Lottery is appealing to players across the country to check their tickets.
