Lena McTigue from Ballina has won €95,600, including an Opel Insignia car, on Saturday’s National Lottery Winning Streak Game Show on RTE.
Lena bought the lucky ticket in Centra Foodmarket, Main Street, Balla.
Lena, originally from Ballintubber, is a housewife and does some farming. Her husband Martin passed away seven years ago. She has a daughter, Mary, and a son, Martin.
Lena was at a wedding in Achill and went looking for a pub to watch Winning Streak. When she saw her name called out to appear on the show, she was not shocked and felt as cool as could be. Lena said that she felt like something urged her to buy the Scratch Card – and she sprinkled Knock holy water on it for luck!
