SHARE IRISH TRUCK DRIVER IS TICKLED HE FINALLY REMEMBERED TICKET

Irish truck driver Tommy Kehoe was so wrapped up watching Ireland's World Cup match against Italy Saturday that he forgot to check his national lottery ticket. Kehoe, a 40-year-old Dublin bachelor, remembered the ticket when it fell out of his pocket Monday, and a belated check showed he had won one million punts, or $1.5 million. He plans to buy a fishing rod and maybe a boat to go with it and promised, "I will certainly be looking after my nine sisters and seven brothers."
