    I agree, a particularly egregious error.  I have updated the article.

    Sorry Todd, I thought the article was written by a news outlet from Ireland.

      It was.  And I referenced (and fixed) their egregious error.

        I just saw another article on her from the BBC and it states that the entire amount is already in her bank account. It would be nice if the U.S. followed suit and paid out prizes tax free to the winners...I know just wishful thinkingSmile

          She doesn't need that ... anymore. Big Smile

          He could bless her with a gift of Knowledge or a million other Graces.

          She referred to "whatever" is out there.

          For her to know that God is out there would be nice.

                    Great event!  An financially struggling, solo, aged in forties woman who wants to share some of her EuroMillions jackpot winnings with her siblings, mother, extended family, etc.!  I hope she is able to quickly distribute half (without any 'lifetime gifting-type-taxes') with them all.  Lots of people are financially struggling in this 13-year worldwide massive depression.
