I forgot to buy an irish lottery ticket for the work syndicate

This answer was rated:

I forgot to buy an irish lottery ticket for the work syndicate and unfortunately the numbers came up... We have the same numbers every week on a fixed odd & would have won £7000 between 6 of us. The other member are saying I should pay the what would have been their share of winnings. Can you advise me please as I have not got this kind of money
