Tony 10 was the online betting username of Tony O'Reilly, the postman who became front-page news in 2011 after he stole EURO1.75 million from An Post while he was a branch manager in Gorey, Co. Wexford. He used the money to fund a gambling addiction that began with a bet of EURO1 and eventually rose to EURO10 million, leading to the loss of his job, his family, his home - and winning him a prison sentence. This is his story.
