Interesting story here about manager of Gorey Post Office who stole from the office to support a losing 1.75 Euro million losing gambling streak.

Interesting thing to me as a punter who wins modestly is that not only did Paddy Power facilitate a 17.5% loss on a turnover of 10 million!!! They also brought him on sports junkets.

Now this is interesting because I know people who have had their accounts closed because they have won a few grand. Seriously. I myself have been refused modest (2/300 Euro) bets on GAA and NFL.

Doesn't say much for the sporting or other ethics of Mr. PP I'm afraid.
