Buncrana man has €163,000 Wining
A B&B owner from
Inishowen spun the Winning Streak Wheel on Saturday
night’s show and won €100,000 bringing his total
haul from the TV game show to €163,000.
Hilary Keller from Buncrana navigated the show to
perfection, winning an impressive €60,000 in cash as
well as a holiday to Venice, worth €3,000. Hilary’s
luck did not end there as he ended up being the
lucky player that got the chance to spin the iconic
Winning Streak Grand Prize Wheel.
His spin resulted in the ball landing in the
€100,000 segment after it took a few bounces either
side, as the RTÉ studio audience fell silent in

Hilary spoke of how
last Saturday, while watching the show, he was left
with his head in his hands as his wife, Margaret,
danced around the sitting room in excitement after
they watched Hilary’s three-star scratch card being
pulled from the drum.
Hilary and Margaret run the Town Clock B&B in
Buncrana. The couple, who are well travelled people,
have three children living all over the world and
even welcomed their daughter and grandchild home
from Abu Dhabi for the Winning Streak show.
Their daughter Louise, who works in Abu Dhabi, was
so excited at her dad’s Winning Streak appearance
that she booked a flight to come home to cheer him
on from the audience alongside her son, Oliver.
Hilary’s two sons Declan and Gerard were watching on
the RTÉ player from their respective homes in Cape
Town, South Africa and Perth, Australia.
The Buncrana couple have run the Town Clock B&B for
the past 27 years. With the winnings from the show,
Hilary and Margaret plan to do some more travelling
and think Route 66 in the US may be on the cards.
