Co Down syndicate celebrate winning lottery ticket

Michelle O’Hare, Gareth Tinnelly and members of the Tinnelly Group Lottery Syndicate celebrate their £253,489.30 EuroMillions win at the demolition company's headquarters in Newry.

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.
