Former factory cleaner Dolores McNamara (56) won a tax-free €115m in the Euromillions lottery in July 2005.

She bought a €4.5m country estate outside Limerick, a sunshine getaway in Turkey and some racehorses. She also invested in a German property fund. Last year it emerged that McNamara may have been targeted in a "ponzi scheme" in the US after she bought 130 nearly derelict houses in Detroit as part of an investment wheeze.
