When hopes become reality
Like many people who play the lottery,Patrick and Frances Connollyalways hoped they would win but didnt have high hopes.
But two years ago, on New Years Day, they scooped 114,969,775 on the EuroMillions after playing every week for years.
When the couple, from County Armagh, Northern Ireland, found out about the life-changing sum, they modestly celebrated with a cup of tea and a hug.
They told ITV: I always hoped we would win the lottery one day, but when we did, it would be just our luck that lots of others would win on the same day with the same numbers too.
Never in my wildest dreams did I think we would ever win almost 115 million.
