An IT worker, originally from Kilkenny, now living in Waterford went on a Winning Streak of his own last Saturday (17th November) and spun the wheel, scooping a cool €57,000 from the National Lottery TV gameshow on RTÉ One.

All week, Martin Walsh was dreaming of spinning the iconic Winning Streak Grand Prize wheel. That dream became a reality as the Carrick-on-Suir, Co. Waterford, based man won €25,000 on the wheel and a total of €57,000 from the show.

Martin has been married to his childhood sweetheart, Caitriona, for 27 years. They met at a children’s summer playschool in Carrick on Suir where they both worked as instructors.

Martin and Caitriona have three boys, Aaron (28), Lorcan (16) and Rory (13), who were all in the audience to cheer him on last weekend. Martin plans to put his Winning Streak winnings towards a college fund for Lorcan and Rory. Martin and Caitriona are also proud grandparents to 4-year-old Orla and they look forward to spoiling her also with winnings from the show.
