Single winner scoops huge jackpot
Lottery draw machine
Only one ticket had all six lucky numbers
The Republic of Ireland's biggest ever lottery jackpot has been secured by a single lucky winning ticket.

The top prize had rolled over to more than 16m euros (10.75m) since 16 June. The winning ticket was bought in Cork city.

The numbers drawn were 4, 13, 29, 32, 35 and 37, and the bonus number was 20.

The winner will have some way to go to catch County Limerick woman Dolores McNamara, who scooped 77m (112m euros) in July 2005 on EuroMillions.
