The rumours circulating around Bessbrook about a local winning Wednesday’s lottery are true we can now exclusively reveal.
Local car enthusiast Damien Beattie won a whopping £4.9 million pounds with the winning numbers of 3,8,32,6,12,9.
The lucky winner immediately took to social media to flaunt his new found wealth with a photograph that showed him covered in £20 notes lying on his bed.
Mr Beattie told Newry Spud:
“Yeah I went to the bank and took out a lock of grand and covered myself in £20 notes. If Snoop Dogg can do it then I don’t see why I can’t indulge in a little bit of showing off.”
It is thought Mr Beattie will invest heavily into his beloved Carrickcruppen GAA club and to the development of Down GAA.
