Martin (31) wasn’t watching Winning Streak when his
name was pulled out by Marty Whelan and Sinead
Kennedy to appear on the show the previous weekend
as he was busy looking after his new born baby
daughter, Katelyn, who was born on September 24th!
Martin met his wife Ciara in Australia in 2011 while
both were travelling and the couple married in April
