Former and popular Ireland footballer Kevin O’Connor is the winner of the UK National Lottery Christmas Millionaire Raffle on New Year’s Eve. he came forward with his winning ticket today and will be receiving his winnings within a few days.
He recently started playing for Preston North End and after learning about his lotto win he went home to claim his win. This former Cork City player will have a very special new year. The funny thing is that he did not actually purchase the winning ticket, his godfather purchased the ticket for his as a holiday present.
His sent the ticket to Kevin in the mail with the Christmas message: “I wish you the best of luck”, he had no idea that the ticket was going to be worth so much. We wish O’Connor a happy new year and best of luck in his sports career and all he does in life!
Although it seems that this young man already has a large amount of luck with him!
