The National Lottery has sent a team to Cork to help search for the holder of a ticket which won €1m in the lottery's Christmas Millionaire raffle.

The holder of the ticket has just over a week, until Friday 31 March, to claim the prize.

The ticket was sold at the Topaz Service Station on Lower Tivoli Road in Cork on 21 December.

The number on the ticket is 179740.

The prize will be forfeited if the ticket holder does not come forward by next Friday's deadline.
