€12m interest for Dolores since 2005



DOLORES McNamara has made an estimated €12million euro in interest since her 2005 Lotto windfall of €115million.

The Garryowen native was 45 and working as a cleaner when she became Ireland’s biggest ever EuroMillions winner.

Ms McNamara moved to Lough Derg Hall from her modest Limerick home but has remained largely out of the limelight.

She made “major contribution” to the suicide crisis centre Pieta House last year.

Meanwhile, the identity if the Irish winner of a €94 million Euro Millions prize this week is still unknown. The winning ticket – sharing the jackpot with someone in Belgium – was bought in the Dublin region, lottery chiefs have confirmed.

A spokeswoman for Ireland’s National Lottery said the winner, or winners, had made contact with them.

“The ticket has been verified and the National Lottery is working with the winner(s) to progress the prize claim,” she said.

It is the second largest jackpot win for Ireland and puts the lucky ticket holder 96th on the country’s rich list. The winning numbers were 4, 5, 13, 27 and 35. The lucky stars were 1 and 2.
