How much is too much? Would you say €10m? Twenty, 25, 50 million? How's about this for a definitive sum: €94m. Roll it around in your mouth. Feel the weight of it.

Ninety-four million quid: a euro sign followed by a nine, four and six zeroes. It's an almost unimaginably large figure, and was won by an Irish player in this week's Euromillions draw.

They shared the jackpot with one other person, in Belgium. At the time of writing, internet gossip had it that the ticket was bought in Blanchardstown.
