One of the syndicate members described her reaction upon realizing they had landed the top prize.

“I heard on the RTÉ News that there was a win in Ireland and I caught the last three numbers,” she told Ireland's National Lottery.

“I checked the rest of the numbers online. I was numb! It took a bit of convincing everybody that we had won."

A family spokesperson, who is married to one of the syndicate members, told the Irish Mirror: "We are a very close family. We meet every week and we take holidays together every year.

"This is a dream come true for us. We don't want this to change our lives.

"What is so exciting is that we will be able to share this money with children, grandchildren and extended family members."
