Guess how glamorous Dolores spent her €113m Lotto win...well a bit of it

SO this is what €113m can do.

Ireland's only Euromillions winner Dolores McNamara made a rare public appearance this week at a charity event, looking a world away from the humble mum-of-six who scooped the jackpot seven years ago.

Posing for pics with X Factor finalist Mary Byrne in a low-cut velvet evening gown, her blonde hair was subtly styled in loose waves while her skin looked radiant.

She was also sporting a gleaming set of pearly-white teeth, sparking suggestions she may have had veneers.

The Limerick mum stunned onlookers with her glamorous appearance as she showed off her impressive make-over at a bash hosted by her hotelier pal Tom Moran.

Although low-key Dolores is sporting a smart new look, you're not likely to find the down-to-earth mum in more exclusive venues.

Shy Dolores bopped the night away at the renowned Red Cow Hotel for the fundraiser which was held in aid of Pieta House.



Generous

Performers for the gala charity event included Mary Byrne, comedians Brendan Grace and June Rogers, with Dolores making sure to pop in to show her support for her long-term friend Tom.

The night was part of an ongoing fundraiser worth €156,000 for the Lucan-based support group, with generous Dolores making a "very major contribution" to the campaign.

"She was unrecognisable from the woman who walked into the Lotto office seven years ago. She looks amazing and has obviously paid a lot of attention to her personal appearance since her big win," said an onlooker.

Dolores is now one of a select number of Limerick multi-millionaires, alongside businessman JP McManus, and is understood to still have the bulk of her fortune.

She is listed as being the 78th richest person in Ireland as she continues to lives a quiet life in Limerick.

The interest she has accumulated on her 2005 Euromillions win has been in the region of €12m.

Ms McNamara hit headlines after her big when she had been struggling to make ends meet as a mum-of-six who worked as a cleaner.
