A few things you could buy if you won the €175m

It’s the question on the lips of every office in Ireland this morning: What would you do if you won the EuroMillions?

Yesterday, it was revealed that the Euromillions’ single winning ticket of €175m was sold in Ireland.

The winning numbers were 1, 8, 18, 19 and 39. The lucky stars were 7 and 9.

It is the biggest ever Euromillions win by a single Irish person.

Just in case the winner is reading this and is stuck for a few ideas on how to spend it, we’ve dug up a few:

Buy an Island in West Cork


Horse Island is a spectacular, fully developed and entirely privately owned island situated in Roaring Water Bay off the coast of Schull, West Cork.

The Island extends to approx. 157 acres (approx. 63.5 hectares) and includes a small townland - casual.

The village is made up of the main house with 6 bedrooms, two 3 bedroom guest houses, two 2 bedroom guest houses and two 1 bedroom cottages.

All houses and cottages have amazing views to the bay and sea, along with extensive walkways through and around the island which provide access to the many sandy beaches and pastures.

Seven million afternoon teas and 11 million bottomless brunches

Notions, are a concept uniquely found in Ireland which loosely translate to delusions of grandeur, but probably more accurately delusions of the middle class.

Conor McGregor’s Car Collection

It’s safe to say, nobody does flashy quite like Conor McGregor and his success, in and out of the octagon, has allowed him to splash out high-end luxury items.

And he’s ‘notorious’ for buying supercars.

Conor McGregor is the proud owner of a fleet of cars and at least one Rolls Royce Dawn said to be worth around €9m.

His current collection includes multiple Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces and Range Rovers, to name just a few.

The Euromillions winner could afford to buy him out, along with €2,187,500 worth of parking tickets.
