Lucky Mahon man to appear on Winning Streak - just three weeks after his sister-in-law

Melissa Monaghan, second from left, won €27,000 on Winning Streak in February. Her brother-in-law, Patrick O'Flynn, is on this week's show.

A lucky Corkman is to get a once-in-a-lifetime chance to appear on Winning Streak this week, just three weeks after his sister-in-law was on the programme.

Mahon-native Patrick O'Flynn didn't manage to make it up to support his sister-in-law Melissa Monaghan in February but he will be hoping to emulate her success this week.

Melissa, from Rochestown, won €27,000 when she appeared on the show.

Patrick, who works at Ryan's Supervalu, said his youngest daughter Stacey, 7, has always insisted that his name would be pulled out but seeing his lucky ticket still made his jaw hit the floor!

The 43-year-old is a busy man but has already planned a two week holiday to Lanzarote this summer. The trip was already booked to celebrate a neighbour's wedding but Patrick's winnings will go a long way towards making it one to remember.

Patrick's wide Deborah and their five children Sarah (20), Dylan (14), Stephen (11), Patrick Junior (9) and Stacey will all make their way to Dublin for the second time in a month to support their dad, along with his mum, Mary, his three brothers Alan, James and George and, of course, his lucky sister-in-law Melissa.

His sister Caroline will be cheering him on from home - as will the rest of Cork!

The episode will be screened on Saturday evening a 8.25pm on RTÉ One, with each of the players hoping to get their chance to spin the grand prize wheel to get their chance at the €500,000 jackpot.
