12 Things Irish People Would Love To Spend A Euromillions Jackpot On

The whole of Ireland was looking around suspiciously at each other earlier this week when it was revealed that someone had won €88m on the Euromillions jackpot. 

While it certainly wasn't us (we wish), it got us thinking. What would we spend the money if we had bagged all that cash?

Given that us Irish are quite a predictable bunch, here's how we reckon most of us would spend it:

1. Doing up the kitchen 

First thing's, first. Ours is fierce tatty looking AND the Walshes next door got their one done last year.


2. Some land

Because.... we're supposed to have land? We think.


3. A heap of cattle 

Well we have to have something to put on the land.


4. A corporate box at Croke Park

Will be great for the summer and sure won't Bruce Springsteen be back before we know it. 


5. A lifetime supply of Penneys Clothes

Only the best. 


6. A money vault like Scrooge McDuck 

Dive in.


7. A racehorse

G'wan ya good thing!!!


8. A visit  to Cousin Fiachra in Australia 

Even though he's a bit of a bollocks but sure look. 


9. A theme park 



10. A big house for Mam and Dad

Will keep them quiet. 


11. A top hat

Because we obviously have to look the part. 


12. A new conservatory 

For keeping an eye on the grand stretch in the evenings
