Plucky Punter Plunders €170k from Boylesports

Boylesports took a massive hit on Sunday after one lucky punter scooped a whopping €170,000.

The lucky winner has been identified as former Waterford manager and Kildare selector, Niall Carew!


The bet was placed in one of Boylesports’ Kildare shops and consisted of a €5 accumulator and a €3 Lucky 15.

The two bets were made up of the same selections, Ribbons in the 3.10 Deauville at 10/1, Ansgar in the 4.15 at Goodwood at 10/1, Kalann in the 5.10 at the Curragh at 16/1 and Kerry v Mayo to finish in a draw at 8/1, totalling to odds of 18,512/1 for the accumulator alone.

Kalann’s win at the Curragh saw the intuitive Mr. Carew turn a €50 bet into a staggering €170,000.

We would like to offer our congratulations to Niall on his fantastic €170,000 win and wish him all the best in enjoying his winnings.

Not only does Niall have his massive winnings to celebrate but he can also revel in beating Boylesports – we hold our hands firmly up in defeat.
