Margaret Loughrey vowed to change the lives of people living in her community with her £27m fortune… in the end, the money destroyed her

We all dream of winning the lottery, of never having to worry about money again, of having our wildest dreams actually within reach. But for Strabane multi-millionaire Margaret Loughrey, winning £27million turned her ordinary life into a nightmare.

n 2013, Margaret was divorced and unemployed, living in a modest two-bedroomed bungalow on a Strabane housing estate when she picked up a EuroMillions ticket on her way back from the job centre.

It was an ordinary Friday and she was trying to figure out how to make the £58 she received in benefits last the week. But after that evening’s EuroMillions draw, she had £27million in her bank account and never had to worry about money ever again.
