Laois man set to appear on latest series of RTE’s Winning Streak

The popular RTE gameshow Winning Streak will have another Laois person on our TV screens this weekend.

Mountmellick native Brendan Lynch will become the second Laois person to take part in the latest series when he takes to the RTE studios on Saturday evening.

Brendan, from Killeen which is between The Rock and Emo, was pulled out of the drum by Marty Whelan and Sinead Kennedy and he follows Portarlington’s Mary O’Neill.

Back in November, she was represented by her daughter Sandra Walsh who lives in Rathangan on Kildare and won €30,000.

Last season, seven different Laois people battled it out to spin the big wheel.

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 of 2019, Mountrath family man Jackie Doheny came away with €59,000.

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

And finally in March, nurse Kathleen Purcell walked away with €30,000. 

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 Brendan!
