A LIMERICK football fan who staked €1 on a huge accumulator has won a whopping €8,000.

The monster accumulator with BoyleSports, which was placed one of the bookmaker’s shops in Limerick, consisted of 19 match bet selections across various fixtures including Limerick FC’s win against Shelbourne in the Airtricity League, a remarkable game in which the Limerick side triumphed 4-3.

All 19 selections came in, seeing the mammoth accumulator click and the Limerick native walk away €8,003.40 better off.

“It is great to see accumulators of this size strike it lucky for our customers. We want to offer our congratulations to the Limerick punter and wish them all the best with their winnings,” said Aoife Heffron of BoyleSports.

“This savvy punter’s accumulator couldn’t come at a better time, we are sure, as their €8,000 winnings could be put to some patriotic use and see them support the Boys In Green in France.”

The winning selections were: Nykopings BIS (v Middelfart G) to win at 8/13, AC Oulu (v EIF) to win at 5/6, Kalmar FF (v Falkenbergs FF) to win at 20/23, IFK Goteborg (v Helsingborgs) to win at 21/20, UCD (v Athlone) to win at 7/10, FC Copenhagen (AGF) to win at 4/9, Midtjylland (v FC Nordsjaelland) to win at 4/11, Viborg (v Hobro) to win at 11/20, Turku PS (v FC Jazz) to win at 11/20, Albania (v Qatar) to win at Even money, Spain (v Bosnia-Herzegovina) to win at 11/20, Viking (v Bodo Glimt) at 4/9, Linares Deportivo (v Cacereno) at 4/5, Turkey (v Montenegro) at 2/5, Almeria (v Mirandes) at 4/11, Gimnastic (v Lugo) at 8/13, Italy (v Scotland) at 3/4, Portugal to win against Norway at 11/20 and finally to finish it off Limerick FC to win against Shelbourne at 3/10.
