Donegal school children wish Mickey all the best on Winning Streak

The children from Stramore National School have joined forces to wish Mickey McDaid all the best on Winning Streak this Saturday night. 

The school bus driver from Glenswilly will appear on the National Lottery Winning Streak TV game show, on RTÉ One, this Saturday, March 23.

The national school children are exceptionally excited that their bus driver is to appear on television and has a chance of winning a major jackpot. 


Mickey is Glenswilly born and bred and has been married to Lorna for seven years and they have three children together. His Winning Streak could not have come at a better time as the couple are currently conducting a self-build of their dream home in Glenswilly. Mickey will be hoping for a spin of the wheel which will be very useful in speeding up the project.

A bus driver by trade, Mickey works with Patrick Gallagher Travel and mainly looks after school runs on his daily beat.

In his spare time, Mickey is a huge sports fan. He used to play for Glenswilly GAA as well as the local soccer club, Kilmacrennan Celtic. Nowadays he keeps fit by training in Letterkenny Kickboxing Club.

The Winning Streak National Lottery game show, co-presented by Marty Whelan and Sinead Kennedy, will be broadcast this Saturday evening at the earlier-than-usual time of 19:10 on RTÉ One.
