Dublin Bus EuroMillions Syndicate Will Return to Work

An Irish EuroMillions jackpot-winning syndicate of workers from Dublin Bus have pledged to return to work, despite sharing a €23.8 million win. The 22 employees arrived at Irish National Lottery headquarters yesterday on one of their company’s bright yellow double-deckers to be unveiled to the press, with each member of the group taking away more than €1 million.

“We’re all still working except for one of the lads who retired last January,” said John Brady, who has been with the firm for more than four decades, “he paid up until November so he was lucky.” His colleague, 51-year-old David Doherty, confirmed, “As far as I know we’re all going back to work,” although Craig Shearer added, “that could change on an icy cold December morning!”

Craig, also 51, confessed the EuroMillions success felt like a second lottery win, having been seriously ill for the last two years with leukaemia. “Cancer was tough,” he admitted, “it put things into perspective and context. I’m out of the danger zone now and in the maintenance phase. I’m very grateful. This is a second win for me.” He now says he will spend some of his winnings on globetrotting.

John Brady said he would like to visit Nashville when he retires, whilst other members talked excitedly about upgrading their cars. When asked whether they would be treating their colleagues who weren’t part of the syndicate to a celebratory night out, one of the group joked, “well, they have to be nice to us!”

Tonight’s draw brings with it a jackpot worth €23 million and you can take one step closer to following in the footsteps of last Friday’s winners by buying EuroMillions tickets online through the Tickets page or at authorised retailers in each of the nine participating countries. Good luck!
