Lotto Money For Job Seeker
Updated : Jun 5, 2009
The lucky €13,150,324 million lotto winner, who most believed to be from wealthy Dublin area, Dalkey, was in fact an unemployed man from the west of Ireland.
The new millionaires had in fact travelled to Dublin last week seeking job opportunities.
“I was made redundant recently which was a hard blow and things haven’t been easy for us lately. My wife and I came up to Dublin to investigate a couple of job interviews and we decided to buy ourselves a Lotto ticket for luck”, he smiled over a glass of champagne
“We stopped off at a couple of spots along the coast of Dublin to enjoy the view and bought ourselves a Quickpick €4 Lotto ticket in a nearby post office. Like other people, we have worked hard all our lives and it is just so exciting and unbelievable for us to have won this amount of money. It certainly means I’ll be taking a break from sending out all my CVs for a while’, smiled the lucky winner.
The winner’s wife smiled as she looked at the cheque in her hands for over €13 million: ‘I’m the one who bought the ticket – but I might give himself some of it too!”she joked. “We plan to share our win, look after our family and those close to us, and repay a couple of special causes who have helped us through tough times,” she finished.
