"Once the ticket was validated I asked Kevin for a hold of it [the ticket] so I could become a millionaire for a few short seconds", Louis Flanagan, the supermarket proprietor, told the Irish Times. One could not meet a nicer person or family. He has not changed one bit. He played with Waterford before joining Cork City.

The former Ireland under-21 global left Cork City in July of past year with the club having amassed a healthy lead at the top of the table along with teammate Sean Maguire.

The former City man now returns to Preston with a spring in his step ahead of the Deepdale outfit's FA Cup clash away to Wycombe Wanderers this Saturday.
