LOTTO WINNER PUTS SOME OF HIS CASH ON DONEGAL WINNING ALL-IRELAND!

first_imgIreland’s newest lotto winner is hoping to get even luckier – by putting some cash on Donegal to win another All-Ireland.Sports fan Kevin Geoghegan scooped €10 million with girlfriend Carol Logan last week.And he revealed that the first thing he has done is put a few euro on Donegal retaining the Same Maguire Cup at odds of 2/1. Kevin said “People are telling me that I’m on a lucky streak at the moment so I decided to put a few bob on Donegal for the All-Ireland at 2-1 odds.“It’s not a bad price but I’ve only put on a small bet because that’s what I usually do and I’m not going to change that now.”Kevin said he genuinely fancies Michael Murphy and his team to go close or even all the way.“Donegal are looking good at the moment and their manager Jim McGuinness is a driven man and you can see that the team would lay down their lives for him on the field. “It’s very good value at 2/1 but I think Dublin or Kerry could also be there or thereabouts when September comes around,” he said. LOTTO WINNER PUTS SOME OF HIS CASH ON DONEGAL WINNING ALL-IRELAND! was last modified: June 5th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalGAAKevin GeogheganLOTTO WINNER PUTS SOME OF HIS CASH ON DONEGAL WINNING ALL-IRELAND!Lotton winnerlast_img read more
