Dan Allen of Muff is a man with great foresight.

He bought a new car number plate from the DVLA the night before Donegal beat Cork. The Reg Number? DL 12 SAM.

Clever Dan paid £1,000 - his winning bid for the number plate.

The following day, the DVLA phoned him to ask him the significance of the number plate, as they had received over 200 calls enquiring about the purchase of it. So, a delighted Dan explained the background to them.

Since then Dan has turned down £10,000 for this unique plate.
