What a might party it would be

Ever seen “Waking Ned Devine”?

It’s an Irish comedy about how 52 villagers hatch a clever plan to share the wealth after one wins the national lottery — and expires from shock.

Discovering their deceased friend in his cottage, one old villager says to the other with a sigh:

“There would’ve been a mighty party.”

When they learn the village’s winnings amount to 7 million pounds — about $10.7 million — they wind up throwing one anyway.

It’s exactly what I would do.

Especially if I had the $61.5 million Powerball ticket that hit Wednesday in Lakewood Ranch.

I’d call John Horne, Sean Murphy or Popi’s and say, let’s celebrate!

It would be a mighty party, indeed.
