What are the odds?

There’s definitely some good fortune in the hills of Donegal as an incredible THREE people from the county are to appear on Winning Streak this week.

Donegal contestants have appeared on six out of eight shows in 2019 so far. And there will be an even bigger local contingent heading to RTE studios this Saturday.

No one could believe it when three Donegal people were drawn from the drum in last week’s show.

They were: Sarah McCarron from Clonmany, Chris Gillespie from Carrick and Kathleen Coyle from St. Johnston.

Presenters Marty Whelan and Sinead Kennedy were just as surprised!

“I think we should do an outside broadcast in Donegal,” Marty suggested after the third name was chosen.

“If the next one is Donegal we’d be cheaper to go there. To get them all down on the bus it wouldn’t be fair,” Sinead added.

Katarzyna (Katya) Galera from Bundoran and Eamonn McCready from Doochery were the last two Donegal contestants to appear on Winning Streak, taking home a cool €53,000 in prizes on 30th March.
