Identities of Knocklyon Supervalu syndicate still unknown after €12.9 million win

Since news broke yesterday of the winning Lotto ticket being bought in Supervalu in Knocklyon, locals have been trying to find out who scooped the whopper jackpot of almost €13m.

The National Lottery confirmed a syndicate has made arrangements to collect their winnings from Wednesday nights draw.

They contacted National Lottery HQ before the close of business yesterday. It has not been confirmed yet whether they intend to go public on their success.

This is the second big win for the same row of shops in Knocklyon after News Extra newsagents a few doors away from the Supervalu sold a winning ticket for €2.8m seven years ago.

It is also a double win for Supervalu manager Ken O Toole as ten years ago he was the manager of a Supervalu in Sutton when a customer scooped a lottery win worth €6.5 million!

Yesterday he and his staff welcomed customers with champagne as they entered the local store but nobody had any idea who the lucky winners are.

The winning Quick Pick selection ticket was bought on the day of the draw and the winning numbers were 2, 15, 19, 26, 37, 38 and the bonus number was 39.

The Lotto Jackpot had been rolling since Wednesday, December 28, 2016.
