Galway Bay fm newsroom – A Ballinasloe woman who was ordered to pay a one sixth share of a lotto win to her stepson by a judge, has lodged an appeal against the ruling.

Judge Richard Humphreys directed Mary Walsh of Perssepark to pay 560 thousand euro of a 3.3 million euro lotto win, to her stepson David Walsh.

David Walsh of Knocknagreena in Ballinasloe won a case to sue his stepmother for a one sixth share of a 3.3 million euro lottery win following a judgement earlier this month (02/02).

The judge accused David Walsh’s stepmother Mary of ‘ducking and weaving’ in the witness box and described her evidence as ‘unreliable’.

His step mother claimed he accepted the family home at Knocknagreena in Ballinasloe instead of a 200 thousand euro share.

According to the Irish Daily Mail, Mary Walsh has lodged an appeal against the ruling, with the case due to be heard on March 24th.
