Bernie Reilly from Churchpark, Kiltimagh, won €25,000, including a holiday to Thailand, on the National Lottery Winning Streak Game Show on RTE, on Saturday night last.
Bernie bought her lucky ticket from Marion Dunne, National Lottery ticket selling agent, Post Office, Kiltimagh.
And Bernie can reveal the secret of her Lottery show success.
She is better known as Bernie, but this was the first time that she has used Bernadette on a Scratch Card. And, not surprisingly, she is going to use it from now on!
Bernie and her husband Brendan have been married for the past 54 years. They have two dogs and have had cats and a pet hen in the past.
Bernie trained as a nurse in St. Patrick Dun’s Hospital and worked in Montreal and Ontario, Canada, for two years before working in Castlebar Hospital.
Bernie is interested in gardening, swimming and getting involved with people. She goes to Lough Derg every year. She would love to go on a holiday to The States to visit her sisters, Sally and Celine. She has been several times before.
