Bridgeene Caulfield from Lifford won the cash on last Saturday’s National Lottery game show on RTE.
Bridgeene (54) has worked as a receptionist at Donegal County Council for 34 years. She is the youngest of 10. Her parents Paddy and Elizabeth have passed away.
Last Saturday was her father’s tenth anniversary and while visiting his grave she said “look over us”, and that night her three stars were drawn on Winning Streak.
Bridgeene will decide in the New Year how she will spend her winnings, but will most likely put a deposit on a house. She is will celebrate in her local pub in Lifford, Brannagan’s, after her appearance on the show.
