Donegal man wins €45,000 on
A DONEGAL man who could barely get over his shock of
getting selected to appear on Winning Streak has won
himself a cool €45,000 on the TV game show last
Saturday, February 16.
Gerard Muldoon from Killygordon scooped €20,000 in
cash and an electric car worth €25,000.
He commented that the news of getting on the show
was “like a tidal wave crashing over him” and he
described the amazing feeling as he watched his name
being drawn from the Winning Streak drum by show
presenters Marty Whelan and Sinead Kennedy two weeks

A GAA fan, Gerard had
just switched over from watching the Dublin versus
Kerry football match in time to watch Winning Streak
– a Saturday evening ritual for him. “As much as you
think you can be ready to hear your name called out,
you can’t actually prepare for it” the delighted
Donegal man quipped!
Gerard follows Donegal in football and is a big fan
of his two local GAA clubs Setanta Hurling Club and
Red Hughs GAA football club.
