Kildare man wins €48,000 on winning streak

Seamus Brennan, a retired ESB worker and part-time farmer from Kildare has won a tidy €48,000 after he spun the iconic wheel on the National Lottery Winning Streak game show on RTÉ One last Saturday, April 21.

Seamus, 72, has been retired from the ESB for a number of years after 40 years’ service but keeps busy running a small farm on a part time basis at Ballyteague, where he looks after cattle and horses.

He spent most of his working life in the ESB based in Allenwood in Kildare but he spent his last eight years at the ESB based in Co Offaly. Seamus has been married to Mary for the past 46 years and she was really excited to be up to RTÉ to cheer her husband on.

The couple have four adult children: Paul, Angela, James and Ciaran and they all supported Seamus in the audience on Saturday. Seamus also has four grandchildren who he adores. They are Aine, Ben, Rory (all three Angela’s children) and Isabel (Paul’s daughter).

In his spare time Seamus is a big GAA fan and supports his local Ballyteague GAA club for whom his son Ciaran lines out. He also supports the Kildare county team who he says would be the best team in Leinster if it wasn’t for Dublin!

With his winnings from the show Seamus says he is going to spend it all on his family.
