Lotto Winner Who Gave Away €33 Million Declared ‘Kind, Generous and Insane’ By Public
TYRONE woman and Euromillions winner Margaret Loughrey has been hailed as a hero by her local community as she revealed she would be giving away €33 million from her €34 million winnings to her hometown of Strabane.
Loughrey, who was unemployed when she purchased the winning ticket, has displayed an innate kindness and generosity which will see the town of Strabane receive a very large and much needed monetary investment.
“There is so much talent in the Strabane area, people just need to be given a chance. Everyone has the right to work for a living, to support their families, to buy their own home, to run their own business – these are things everyone should have a right to do,” Loughrey was quoted as saying.
The 48-year-old is understandably viewed as a hero by her neighbours and community while the rest of the island of Ireland claim she is ‘kind’, ‘generous’ but more importantly ‘obviously insane’.
Many people throughout the 32 counties are struggling to come to terms with her decision and a number of them spoke to WWN.
“I think everyone should give to charity, be kind and thoughtful, but if you win 30-odd million there should be a law against giving it all away, that’s fucking mad like,” shared concerned Cork resident and fan of money David Lyons.
“Ah, she must be tapped, of course I’d give it the big ‘I’d love the help out the starving’ if I won, but obviously if I did win I’d fuck off to Barbados quicker than it takes the Ferrari I would buy to reach 60kph,” opined Liam Banville, a civil servant from Dublin.
“I commend her, honestly I do. Do you know if a millionaire is declared insane, can you get power of attorney or anything like that, so you could spend the money on more worthwhile things like a novelty boat in the shape of a champagne bottle?” queried Eoghan Loughrey, who assured WWN he was related to the winner.
A poll carried out by WWN confirmed that 100% of people think Loughrey’s decision to give the money away is very unfair to all the other lotto players. 110% of people also claimed that, had they won the money, they would done the correct thing and spent it all on themselves within a year.
