Tony 10 was the online betting username of Tony O’Reilly, the postman who became front-page news in 2011 after he stole €1.75 million from An Post while he was a branch manager in Gorey. He used the money to fund a gambling addiction that began with a bet of €1 and eventually rose to €10 million, leading to the loss of his job, his family, his home – and winning him a prison sentence. From the heart-stopping moments in a hotel room in Cyprus with his wedding money riding on the Epsom Derby, to the euphoria of winning half a million over a weekend, to the late goals and the horses falling at the last fence, Tony 10 is the story of an ordinary man’s journey from normality to catastrophe. At times, he vowed to get out while he was ahead, only to be taken by another surge of adrenaline, falling deeper and deeper into a compulsion that consumed his life. His disappearance on the morning the fraud was discovered led to a surreal three days on the run in Northern Ireland, and ultimately his arrest, conviction and sentencing to four years in jail. Tony 10 is the mesmerising story of the secret life of a pathological gambler – as well as the most compelling account yet of the damage wrought by the online gambling industry.

Being a bit introverted, I spent a lot of time at home with my mother in my youth. She confided many of her more private feelings and thoughts about her mother, Antonia. From what I could understand, the subject was off limits in her family circle. Perhaps she felt it was easier to talk about it with me rather than her brothers. Her sister lived in California. She lost her mother when she was three years old, so she had no memories of her. She wondered what her mother looked like, as she had no photos of her. Then she unraveled the sad story of her mothers demise. I write this book to add some closure to the story. The demise of Antonia fractured the Pagano family and has scarred several generations. Hopefully, in my small way, I can relate the pleasant as well as the less pleasant qualities of the lives of Antonia and Pasquale. Also in this book, I would like to celebrate the extended Pagano family. In spite of a sad glitch in its history, the extended family has much to be proud of. Note: There is a large notebook titled Pagano Family Archives in the home of the author. The entire set of documents is stored there for anyone who wants to view it.
