A Kilkenny man won E137,500 in the National Lottery’s Big game Show on RTE television on Saturday night.

Liam Nolan from Dunbell, three miles outside the city, fought back the tears as his family surrounded him after he managed to get the black ball (worth E100,000) to stay in the centre of a metal bowl. This was after he found the all important key in the last round of the game show hosted by Brian Ormond and his wife Pippa O’Connor on RTE 1. Mr Nolan who is married with three daughters and a son, had earlier won E37,000 in the show.
