Former cleaning lady Dolores McNamara won 115m in the Euromillions lottery in July 2005. She bought a 4.5m country estate outside Limerick, a property in Turkey, houses in the US and some racehorses. She also invested in a German property fund. Last April McNamara, advised by Eddie Hobbs, made an offer above the 44m guide price for Childers Road Retail Park, located in her native Limerick, but was beaten to it by Irish Life.
