Co Down syndicate celebrate winning lottery ticket
An 18-strong work syndicate from a Co Down demolition company are celebrating after winning more than £250,000.
The Newry-based staff from Tinnelly Group Ltd pocketed more than £14,000 each after matching the five main numbers and one Lucky Star number in the EuroMillions draw last month.
The winning ticket lay on one of the team's desk for a week after a change in their routine as to who bought the Lucky Dip lines.
Syndicate manager Michelle O'Hare from Warrenpoint - who usually got the tickets for the month - was at a wedding so the duty fell to her colleague, Gareth Tinnelly.
The lucky numbers were purchased at Mulkerns Eurospar on the Forkhill Road, close to the firm's headquarters.
