 A Lotto winner arrived in a stretch limo to collect his jackpot – but forgot the all-important lucky ticket
 Odhran Doherty had to ask for his Hummer to be turned around 10 miles into his journey to collect his winnings
 The 23-year-old was travelling from Donegal to Dublin, Ireland, after scooping an incredible £850,000 (€1,000,000)
 Farm worker Odhran said: “My father put it in a safe place, a wee bit too safe now to be honest
We were in Raphoe, near where we got the bloody thing.    “But it wasn’t too bad, we were only in Raphoe so we got it back and it was alright
”   Odhran was gifted the Lotto ticket by his father, Liam, after a tough day’s work along with his mum, Margaret, at the family farm in Letterkenny, reports the Sun
 Liam said: “We were working on Saturday, Margaret, myself and him on the farm all day and I decided to go up to Raphoe for something to eat
 “I bought three tickets, one for Margaret, myself and Odhran.”  Liam revealed he might treat the family to a new Massey Ferguson tractor with the winnings and a family holiday in the next few months
   Mum Margaret said she’d also like to visit New York to do some clothes shopping
 She said: “He’s a very good boy and we’re very proud of him. He has his own opinions but he’s very thoughtful and that’s all we want
”  Odhran said he plans on still working on the farm, but said “every day is a party now
”  The family are also planning on having a party to celebrate the “unimaginable” win
