Carlow/Kilkenny people urged to check numbers after Lotto win at airport

Someone coming home for Christmas may have won last night’s €5.4m Lotto jackpot.

And it could be someone arriving back to Carlow or Kilkenny for the holidays, or a local up to collect a loved-one,  after it was been confirmed the winning ticket was sold in the WH Smith shop in the arrivals hall at Dublin Airport.

The ticket was a quick pick bought on Friday.

National Lottery Spokesperson Miriam Donohoe is encouraging locals to check their numbers.
