A Donegal-based bus driver got the chance of a lifetime to spin the wheel on RTE’s Winning Streak on Saturday – to win a whopping €17,000!
Mickey McDaid told co-host, Sinead Kennedy, that when it was announced that he was to appear on Winning Streak it led to a lot of confusion as there were three other Mickey McDaid’s in the area.
Meanwhile, his phone never stopped ringing with friends and family looking to know was it him who was on a Winning Streak.
After a sleepless night of wondering has his luck come in, Mickey celebrated after receiving a phone call from National Lottery officials to confirm he was the Mickey McDaid in question!
Mr McDaid is a bus driver, serving the Little Angels, St. Bernadette’s, and Stramore areas.
Mickey is the FIFTH Donegal person to appear on Winning Streak in just six weeks.
Speaking in the RTE studio in Donnybrook in Dublin, he gave a big hello to all of the school children who had designed the signs that were proudly on display in the audience.Tags:
