Irish Lottery - A few questions

Hi there,
I have never played the Irish lottery before and would like to ask if anyone here has as I have a few questions.
- I am based in England and have a UK passport - Can I still play if I am not an Irish citizen?
Also, can anyone confirm the actual official website. I am assuming it is this one: https://www.lottery.ie/
Many thanks!

    YOU MUST BE AGED AT LEAST EIGHTEEN YEARS AND LEGALLY RESIDENT IN IRELAND TO PLAY THE GAMES

    Yes you can, I've been playing for years, usually go to Ladbrokes to do it but since lockdown I play on line and have had a few good wins. Good luck

    If you're playing via Ladbrokes, are you actually playing the Irish Lottery itself or are you betting which numbers will be drawn ? 
    (if you see what I mean - presumably the money you pay is a bet which Ladbrokes take and none of it goes to the Irish Lottery?)
    2021 wins: matchbox seedball, 2 tiny pots of peanut butter - hoping for bigger wins !!
    Best win ever: Trip to the Galapagos Islands in 2010

    It looks like you are placing a bet with ladbrookes on the result. Not on the lottery itself. You can do up to 5 numbers. The actually lottery is 6 numbers plus bonus
