Aine Keely from Coill Dubh won E89,800 on last Saturday’s (5 March 2011) National Lottery Winning Streak TV game show held in RTE.
Aine has four sons and one daughter – Seamus, Padraig, Brian, Noel and Ann. Her daughter lives in West Midland, England, but travelled over to be at the show. Aine has nine grandchildren.
She considers herself to be lucky – she even won E75 this week at bingo! She was cleaning her kitchen sink last Saturday night when she heard her name being announced on the show. She has been over the moon since!
Aine’s favourite thing to do is to bake. She used to do a lot when her family were young but still bakes a little. She plays bingo three nights a week and enjoys playing cards – the game of 25 is her favourite.
She never gives any thought to planning for her winnings. She prefers to wait and see what she will win before she makes any decisions! No doubt considerable thought will go into what she will do with the princely sum of E89,800
