Mountrath man set to become the latest Laois person on Winning Streak

Jackie Doheny will appear on Winning Streak

There is seemingly no end to the amount of Laois people who are appearing on the latest series of Winning Streak.

Last night’s show saw Marty Whelan and Sinead Kennedy pull yet another Laois name out of the drum – Jackie Doheny.

Jackie is from Mountrath and will take his place alongside four other players on next Saturday night’s show.

Jackie is now retired but previously worked as a foreman for Mountrath Sawmills before Sheeran’s took over the mill in the village.

He is married to Magareth (Peg) and there will surely be a huge Laois contingent in the studio in RTE for the show next Saturday.

Since the latest series of Winning Streak began, four other Laois people have appeared on the show.

Back in September 2018, retired Portlaoise tailor Vincent Keegan won a tidy €27,000. 

Then in October, Portlaoise’s Mary Flynn took home €19,000 following her appearance on the show.

While at the start of November, there were emotional scenes as Anthony Knowles took home €57,000 after winning a car on the show. 

While the most recent Laois participant was Mountmellick’s Jimmy O’Neill at the end of November who won €33,000. 

If Jackie does as well as any of the Laois people who have gone before him – he will certainly come home happy.

Best of luck Jackie!
