IRISH JACKPOT WINNER KEEPS IT IN THE FAMILY
Winning the lottery is one thing, but Gerard Murphy “kept it in the family” as his winning jackpot numbers were bought from his brother-in-law’s store.
In 2015, Gerard Murphy’s extremely lucky numbers (3-7-11-33-37-42) managed to win him the Irish Lotto Jackpot of €6,384,673.
Gerard’s winning numbers were based on the same numbers he had been playing for 20 years, these lucky numbers had been derived from the birthdays of his four children.
Martin Murphy, the store owner, congratulated his brother-in-law and said that he couldn’t be happier for him. “Little did I know, that one of my very own relatives had bought the winning ticket,” he admitted to lottery officials. “I just couldn’t believe it when Gerard popped in to say he had the winning ticket.” He added “It’s a massive win and it’s great that his mother, Mamie, is still alive to celebrate the big win.”
Gerard has been very calm about his win, ever since he found out and even though he is now a multi-millionaire, he plans to continue working at his current job.
