A dad from Co. Cork had a dream come through as he spun the Winning Streak wheel and won a total €60,000 from the National Lottery TV game show on RTÉ One last Saturday (23rd March).
Seamus Ronan from Roscarbery, Co. Cork won €22,000 on his spin of the iconic Winning Streak Grand Prize Wheel. Add that to the €35,000 in cash he won from the show and a holiday to Oslo, Norway worth €3,000, Seamus was delighted with his haul from the RTE show.
Seamus spoke of the excitement in his house when his name was drawn from the drum a fortnight ago. He was delighted and was jumping around the house, shouting in celebration
Seamus has a young family and is with his girlfriend Aoife for the past 11 years. They have three young children together and they are Colin (4) and twins, Darragh and Liadh (2) who were excited to watch their Daddy on television last Saturday night.
Seamus works for Cork County Council as a driver, based in their Skibbereen location and his work colleagues, as well as his friends and neighbours, have been so kind in wishing him well all last week.
His Winning Streak appearance has come at a good time as Seamus has a to-do list outstanding from when they built their own house four years ago and now he is going to tackle this list with his show winnings.
The National Lottery game show, co-presented by Marty Whelan and Sinead Kennedy, features some perennial favorite games as well as brand new games including Play or Pay, Roll for Riches, WinFall and Electric Dream – where one player will win an electric car worth €25,000.
