A West Donegal man was the lucky winner of €40K and a luxurious holiday to Yosemite National park on RTE’s popular Winning Streak.

Paddy McGee, Lower Glassagh, Derrybeg, Letterkenny knew nothing about the whole affair until he heard his name called out on the previous week’s show,

He said, “I hardly laid my hand on the scratchcard. It was my mother Grace who bought it and my wife Martina posted it - I knew nothing about it!

“I am living in a house surrounded by women with three daughters, Eva, Avril and Aideen and of course, my wife Martina.

“I suppose it’s just as well - otherwise that scratchcard might never have made it to Dublin !

Paddy enjoys off shore fishing and there is no shortage of it around his home in Derrybeg and would also be a strong supporter of Livepool who have shown a great improvement over the last few months.

“I am not superstitious at all, I was just grateful to be on the show and lucky enough to take home a few Euro to Donegal.

Paddy will be using his winnings to pay off his bills, his car loan and if he has anything left he would love to be able to take a slice of the mortgage.
