Laois nurse set to appear on RTE’s Winning Streak

Winning Streak

We’ve only gone and done it again – for the seventh time this series, a Laois person will appear on Winning Streak.

Katheleen Purcell from Crettyard will appear on the show this Saturday after Marty Whelan and Sinead Kennedy pulled her ticket out of the drum last weekend.

Kathleen works as a nurse in Abbeyleix Hospital and there is sure to be a massive crowd from Crettyard in the RTE Studio on Saturday night to cheer her on.

Since the latest series of Winning Streak began, six 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. 

Later that month, Mountmellick’s Jimmy O’Neill went on and won €33,000. 

Then in January, Mountrath family man Jackie Doheny came away with €59,000.

While our most recent participant came on February 16 when Mountmellick mam Jane Delaney won €36,000.

As ever one of the lucky five players will get the chance to spin the wheel and win up to €500,000.

But in this series a €100,000 segment will be added to the iconic Grand Prize Wheel every show if less than that was won in the previous show, improving players chances to win a massive prize.

Best of luck Kathleen!
