Dale Farm travellers fighting eviction own multi-million pound housing estate back home in Ireland
- Saga blows apart travellers’ claims there is nowhere for them to go
- Basildon Borough Council paid housing benefits for some travellers directly to a landlord based at the estate
A builder living on Europe’s largest illegal traveller site is secretly backing a lavish 33-home property development in Ireland, it emerged yesterday.
Michael Quilligan, the son of a traveller worth £24million, is among the 96 families who claim they will be made homeless when they are removed from Dale Farm in Essex.
However, planning records show that Mr Quilligan is the mastermind behind a multi-million-pound development in the town of Rathkeale, the spiritual home of travellers in the west of Ireland.
Under construction: The multi-million pound development of large detached homes in Rathkeale in the west of Ireland
The large detached and semi-detached houses — worth up to £400,000 — are close to completion and are near to the local equivalent of millionaires’ row, where other substantial gated properties can be found.
Mr Quilligan is thought to have sold some of the properties to other travellers.
It is unclear whether Dale Farm residents are among the buyers but one local report yesterday claimed that a dozen of the families facing eviction have bought homes in Rathkeale.
Members of Basildon Council, which is responsible for clearing the Dale Farm site, are calling for an urgent investigation.
This latest twist in the saga blows apart the travellers’ claims that there is nowhere ‘culturally sensitive’ for them to go if they are evicted.
Their links with Rathkeale – where around half of the town’s properties are owned by travellers – prove they have a perfect retreat in their native land.
Battle: Police will start to remove families from the Dale Farm site in Essex on Monday
It also emerged yesterday that Basildon Borough Council had paid housing benefits for some of the Dale Farm travellers directly to a landlord based in Rathkeale.
John Flynn, 55, bought the former scrapyard at Dale Farm for £120,000 ten years ago and owns about five caravan pitches on the site.
The council admitted it paid money directly to Mr Flynn at an address in Rathkeale to cover the rent of his tenants, who were allowed to claim housing benefits, despite living on an illegal site.
Many of the homes in Rathkeale remain boarded up apart from a few months a year and at Christmas when a cavalcade of UK-registered Range Rovers, Mercedes, BMWs and Porsches roll into the town, pulling caravans behind them.
Extravagant traveller weddings and christenings in the local Roman Catholic church add to the carnival atmosphere over the Christmas period.
Defiant: Travellers living at the Dale Farm site in Essex have vowed to remain there
Mr Quilligan, a father of four, runs a business called Michael Quilligan Building Contractor and is the son of Rathkeale’s wealthiest traveller, Simon ‘Sammy Buckshot’ Quilligan, an antiques dealer.
John Dornan, a Tory councillor in Essex, said: ‘I have long called for an inquiry into the funding of the site.
‘This new information needs to be looked at by the council to compare it with any homeless applications and housing benefits claims.
‘I do not want to prejudice any investigation, but if any of the same people are involved, it would have huge implications.’
Dale Farm, built on green belt land near Basildon, came to the attention of planners around ten years ago when illegal plots started springing up around a smaller approved site.
Time to move: The Dale Farm site covers 52 plots and has a 400-strong community
Since then it has grown into a 400-strong community of travellers who have built roads and connections to electricity.
Bailiffs and police are planning to start removing travellers on the illegal camp from Monday after the council won a High Court battle to evict them.
Another traveller, Richard O’Brien – an uncle of Dale Farm spokesman Richard Sheridan but not from the site himself – is developing 44 houses near his home in Rathkeale, called the Castle Park estate.
A third housing estate of 18 properties, again linked to members of the Sheridan clan, is also thought to have been built.
Last night Mr Sheridan, who is president of the UK Gipsy Council, said: ‘This is all rubbish. I wouldn’t know anything about this.’
Len Gridley, 52, whose home backs on to the Dale Farm site, said: ‘This proves it is not just about people with nowhere to go. People have been making money out of this by renting out illegal properties.’

Daily Millions rules and basics
The rules are incredibly simple. We have 39 balls, with a unique number from 1 to 39 on each. During the Irish Daily Million evening draw, seven of the balls are dropped. The last ball is special — it is called the bonus ball and has its own separate betting markets. However, you can also include it to your regular bets. Actually, you’re already including it, when placing a bet on Daily Million numbers. Let’s turn to details for better understanding.
Here on YesPlay, you can include 1, 2, 3 or 4 numbers to your bet on the Daily Millions lottery. In such bets, the order of balls is not important, and the bonus ball is included automatically. The odds in the regular bets vary from 4.0 to 2000.0 and depend on the number of balls. As you see, guessing Irish Daily Million evening results may be quite a profitable affair.
Having predicted the precise number of a bonus ball, you will multiply your initial stake on 35.0. Remember that in the Daily Millions lottery, you shouldn’t mix two different types of balls within one bet. Newbies can also try their luck in guessing whether the bonus ball’s number will be from 1 to 9 (a single digit). This option has a 3.0 coefficient.

How to WIN Ireland Daily Million Lotto
ODD-EVEN LOTTO NUMBER TIPS
When you select your Ireland Lotto numbers, try to have a relatively even mix of odd and
even numbers. All odd numbers or all even numbers are rarely drawn, occurring only
one percent of the time. The best mix is to have 2/4, 4/2 or 3/3, which means two
odd and four even, or four odd and two even, or three odd and three even. One of
these three patterns will occur in 81 percent of the drawings.
HIGH-LOW LOTTO NUMBER TIPS
Winning numbers are usually spread across the entire number field. If we take a
number field and cut it in half, we have the low half and the high half. In a
39-number game like Irish Daily Million, numbers 1 to 20 would be in the low half, and numbers 21 to 39
would be in the high half. All high numbers or all low numbers are rarely drawn, occurring
only 1 percent of the time. The best mix is to have 2/4, 4/2 or 3/3, which means
two high and four low, or four high and two low, or three high and three low.
Winning number groups with these three patterns occur in 81 percent of all drawings.
LOTTERY NUMBER GROUP STRATEGIES
Look at a list of past winning numbers for Ireland Daily Million results, and you’ll see,
more often than not, that one or more of the number groups is not represented. For
example, in the combination 5-14-17-32-38-39, there are no 20’s. Tracking and studying
Number Groups can help you decide which group to omit and which group to give extra
LOTTERY GAMES SKIPPED STRATEGIES
List the number of games skipped (games out) since the last hit (win) for each of
the winning numbers during the last five games. Then mark the number of times each
skip occurred. If any skip from 0 to 5 did not occur, play the Lotto numbers that
are out that many games. (Help working with lotto games skipped.)
LOTTO NUMBER SUM ADVICE — PLAY A BALANCED GAME
After you choose six Dailymillion lotto numbers you want to play, add them together and make sure
that the sum of the six numbers adds up to somewhere between 93 and 147. Sums that
fall within that range will account for over 70 percent of all lottery jackpots won.
REPEAT HITS LOTTERY TIPS
In Ireland Daily Million, on average, one lottery number will be a repeat hit from the last drawing 65 percent
of the time.
HOT NUMBER LOTTERY SECRETS
Numbers that have been out (losers) for five games or less account for about
half of the winning numbers drawn. Losing numbers
that have been out
ten games or less account for 84 percent of all the winning numbers. This tells
us that hot numbers are more likely to hit, but don’t forget to include at
least one long shot in your group of 6.
COLD NUMBER LOTTERY SECRETS
It is difficult to know when a cold number will end a long losing streak. If you play a
number every drawing because you think it is due, you could be chasing it
for many months. (Number 45 in New York Lotto sat out 100 drawings before it
finally hit.) Although, when a number has been out for 70 games or so, it might be

Lottery numbers are randomly drawn. But randomly drawn numbers form patterns

How to play Daily Millions
Daily Million is a 6/39 lottery — in each drawing, 6 of 39 balls are dropped. However, in the Irish Daily Millions results, you will also see the 7th ball, marked in red. It is a special ‘bonus ball’, which is always dropped last.
YesPlay allows you to guess up to 4 Daily Millions numbers, including the bonus ball. To place a bet on all 7 balls at once, just enter from 1 to 4 numbers to the higher cells. If you want to generate the Daily Millions numbers randomly, use the Quick Pick button.
If you want to pick the bonus ball out, enter the appropriate number to the lower cell or generate it with the Quick Pick option. By doing so, you will place a bet only on a bonus ball. It is more returning that a simple one-number bet — if you win, your stake will be increased 35 times!
Daily Million doesn’t offer players a huge variety of betting markets. Apart from betting on the exact numbers, you can only guess whether the bonus ball will have a one-digit number on it.
The afternoon draw always starts at 15:30. According to the Irish Daily Millions odds, you can multiply your stake on coefficients from 3 up to 2000 in case of winning.

Save Money by Knowing Lotto Numbers to Avoid
Lotto players who select their lottery numbers thoughtlessly or foolishly are destined to lose even before the drawing takes place.
By knowing which number combinations and patterns to avoid, you’ll have an advantage over such players—and save money, too.
AVOID NUMBER COMBINATIONS THAT HAVE BEEN DRAWN BEFORE
Many players like to bet the numbers that have won someone else a big jackpot, and
by doing so, they are almost guaranteed NOT to win one themselves. In Daily Million,
with seven drawings a week, a set of 6 numbers has a chance of being drawn once
every 8,939 years!!! This should also answer the question we are so often asked,
«Shouldn’t I keep playing the same set of numbers every week because they are due
to hit sometime?»
AVOID BETTING SIX CONSECUTIVE LOTTO NUMBERS
Six consecutive numbers have never been drawn in any state or international lotto game.
Smart Luck has all the drawing results for more than 190 state and international lottery games, going back more than fifty years!
Even five consecutive numbers is a very rare occurrence that, in most Lotto games, has never happened once.
AVOID BETTING ONE LOTTO NUMBER GROUP
Never choose all six numbers from one number group, such as all single digits, or
all teens, or all 20’s, etc. All six winning numbers drawn from one group is
AVOID THE LOTTO COMBINATION 1-2-3-4-5-6
The most popular set of numbers most often played is: 1-2-3-4-5-6. Thousands of
tickets are bought with this combination every drawing. The selection
is too far out of balance to come up in a random drawing.
AVOID PATTERN BETTING
is an even more popular method of marking bet slips. Patterns of
numbers marked in a row to make a straight line, either across the bet slip
vertically or diagonally get heavy play—which means having to split the prize with
others if your numbers win the game. Other designs such as patterns of
initials or numbers or crosses also get heavy play.
AVOID NUMBER MULTIPLES
Other popular combinations that get heavy play are the number multiples, especially
5-10-15-20-25-30 and 7-14-21-28-35-42.
AVOID ALL SAME LAST DIGITS
Many people want to pick their lotto numbers with a single last digit, such as 3-13-23-33-43,
or all numbers that
end in seven, or another favorite lucky lottery number. Even four numbers with the same last digit occur
in less than two-tenths of one percent of all drawings. Winning lotto tickets with
three last digits the same occur in less than 3 percent of all drawings. Winning sets
of numbers with no more than one repeated last digit represent nearly 90 percent of all
AVOID LOW NUMBER COMBINATIONS
The majority of Lotto players like to play the calendar numbers, such as birth
dates and anniversaries—and their children’s ages. This means that the most
heavily played numbers are 1 through 31. Daily Million has 39 numbers. If you play
only the calendar numbers, you might be sharing your jackpot with dozens of other
winners. It’s not to say that you shouldn’t play your personal numbers if you feel these lucky numbers are good to play. But we recommend that you include a couple of high
numbers so that just in case your numbers do hit, you win a prize that’s worth
NIX LOTTO QUICK PICKS
Quick Picks are used by lazy people who want to be in the action without putting
any effort into winning. When you read articles about jackpot winners, it appears
as though they all used either Quick Picks, birth dates, or their children’s ages.
The vast majority of people do play that way. If the majority of tickets sold are
Quick Picks, then it makes sense that the majority of jackpots won should be won
with Quick Picks. However, when you see the actual lotto statistics, as Gail Howard did, you’ll find that you have
a better chance of winning by picking numbers randomly out of a hat than by using
How to Get Lucky in Lotto
CASH IN ON THE LUCK OF OTHERS
When you form a Lotto pool, your group is also pooling its aggregate luck. A
jackpot could happen because of the luck just one member brings to your pool.
Select your partners carefully. Share your luck with winners, not losers. Avoid
negative people. Not only are they unlucky, but they dampen enthusiasm and drain
energy from others. You want to enhance your own luck, not dilute its strength. One
quick way to tell winners from losers is simply to ask them: «Do you think you
are a lucky person?» Many people quickly admit, «I’m unlucky. I never win
anything.» They won’t bring good luck to your group either.
CASH IN ON A POSITIVE ATTITUDE
No one should play games of chance out of desperation because they need a
fast cash payout. The needy have a greater fear of losing the hard-earned money they gamble
with. It is just one of life’s dirty tricks that the very fear of losing blocks the
winning forces. Thoughts are charged with energy, especially when triggered by
emotion. Fear attracts exactly that which one fears. A strong desire for a goal
that is charged with positive energy, attracts a positive response, especially when
every effort is made to attain that goal.
USE BALANCED WHEEL SYSTEMS
Balanced Wheeling Systems allow you to bet a large group of numbers (more than 5), play scientific combinations of that group of numbers, and get a specific minimum win guarantee.
Balanced Wheels force all the winning numbers that are in your group to come together to give you at least one prize if some or all of the winning numbers are in your chosen group.
It’s true that the more numbers you wheel, the easier it is to trap the winning
numbers in your chosen group. But to get the most leverage for your money, the optimum
number of numbers to wheel is not more than four or five numbers over HALF the numbers
in your game. To win Daily Million, you should wheel less than 24 numbers.
Otherwise, you’ll be spending MORE money chasing a SMALLER guaranteed prize.
You benefit more by wheeling a carefully selected group of lotto numbers.
THE BEST WAY TO WHEEL ALL THE LOTTO NUMBERS IN YOUR GAME
Any one wheeling
system that covers ALL the numbers in the game is too spread out, making the win
guarantee not worth the wager. There are smart ways to wheel all the numbers in
the game by using Trap-by-Overlap and other wheeling strategies covered on pages
137 to 142 in the Lottery Master Guide.
Most of Smart Luck’s lottery winners used a Balanced Wheel in addition to her Smart Luck number selection methods.
You can use a FREE interactive Balanced Wheel Lottery System that won multiple lotto jackpots.
Read about our lottery winners, too.
And when you win a jackpot with Smart Luck lotto systems, tell us about it so you can be added to Gail Howard’s growing list of lottery winners.
If you don’t want your name publicized, we will honor that.
