Christmas came early for a local couple after they scooped a whopping €105,633 in the EuroMillions draw.

The Louth couple bought the €6 winning ticket in Eamonn Bishop & Sons Spar Express on the Newry Road.

The couple realised they hit lucky last Wednesday after they matched 5 numbers in the draw on Tuesday 2rd December.

The lucky couple, who wish to remain anonymous, said they couldn’t believe their luck.

They said: ““We’re absolutely thrilled and still can’t believe we are sitting here! We checked the numbers over and over on many different mobile devices just to make sure it was correct!”

“It’s a nice early Christmas present!” they said smiling.

When ask what they plan to do with their winnings, the couple said: “Firstly, we’ll look after the very important Santa presents and then possibly go on a nice family holiday.”

Dundalk has had a streak of luck over the last number of months, with local people winning jackpots.
