SIMON Fagan got fitted out at Michael Lynch’s Mans Shop in Clanbrassil Street Dundalk last week before heading off to Dublin to collect his €3,595,558 Lotto jackpot.
“In 2006 The Joe’s won the county championship,” said Simon, a life-long supporter of St Joseph’s GFC. “That was a great week of celebrations. Hopefully, this week will be as good”.
Simon is a real sports fan and on Friday afternoon last he took a flight to Sheffield for the World Snooker semi-finals and final at The Crucible.
Simon is sharing his win with his mum Patricia which he won with a €6 QuickPick ticket bought at Lanney’s SuperValu Ardee.
Simon’s mum Patricia and dad Simon will be married 47 years this year.
Simon’s broghers and sisters are Catherine, married to Finbarr Shields, Linda and Siobhán, Martin, Stephen and Robert.
Simon and his brothers live at home. Siobhán and Linda live in Dublin while Catherine lives in Louth.
Simon was made redundant from Louth Transport, where he worked for Frank Mullen, three years ago. He is currently working as a groundskeeper at the GAA Darver Centre.
