  • EuroMillions winners: Frances and Patrick Connolly scoop £114.9MILLION

Mr Robinson said he took over from Mrs Connolly but did not know her personally.

At the time, Margaret Loughrey said that on the day she bought the ticket, she had been to the job market to get an application form for a job with a charity.

Mrs Connolly said when she saw her husband was looking at the lottery she realised they must have won something.

The 52-year-old said the only thing they have done since their win is make a list of people to give the money to.

"We rang Camelot at 8am in the morning to verify the win".

She did not believe him when he said they had hit the jackpot.

They said they were hard-working people who did not carry a lot of debt and did not indulge in luxuries before their win.

The couple have described how they plan to share their good fortune with loved ones.

St Francis secretary Trevor Robinson said: "It feels like we've won the lottery too", after hearing the news. "Then it started to dawn on us that it was true even though it still hasn't really sunk in".

Mrs Connolly, 52, said: "The pleasure for me will be seeing their faces and asking what they want us to do for them". "This win gives us the chance to really make a difference for our family and friends".

Asked by a reporter if they had thought about personal security, Mrs Connolly quipped: "I've never met anyone I couldn't take down myself!"
