An man from from the Kildare side of Enfield is gearing up to appear on Winning Streak on behalf of his wife this weekend.

Truck driver, Eddie O’Brien, will take his wife Bridget’s place, whose name was pulled out of the drum last Saturday, to appear on the popular game show.

Eddie has been a truck driver for the past 39 years, transporting animals around for veterinarian organisation, Co-Operative Animal Health Transportation.

He has been volunteering in his local credit union in Enfield, where he his chair of the credit committee, for the past 21 years.

The 62 year old and his wife Bridget have two children, John and Mary, and four grandchildren – two of whom; Dylan and Shane, will be in the audience cheering Eddie on Saturday. The other two Saoirse and David will be watching from home.

With any winnings from the game show Eddie says that Bridget will get the say there but they will do a few home improvements but they will mostly look after their children and grandchildren.
