It was a historic week for Ireland with a family syndicate from Dublin scooping a whopping €175 million EuroMillions jackpot on Tuesday. It is the biggest lottery win by an Irish ticket holder in the country's history and it comes in fourth on the all-time league of EuroMillions' biggest ever jackpots
The two biggest prizes were won by ticket holders in Spain and Portugal who each scooped €190 million. Ireland also experienced another huge win
in 2005 when Dolores McNamara from limerick won the country's first ever EuroMillions jackpot, worth €115 million.
