Twinning Streak for Donegal sisters 25.01.19

A DONEGAL twin has been selected to appear on the Winning Streak TV Game Show ten years after her identical sister appeared on it.
In what is an incredible coincidence the Collum sisters, Rosie and Maggie from Falcarragh, are still coming to terms with their “Twinning Streak” with the entire community joining in the excitement.
Rosie Collum won €37,000 on Winning Streak ten years ago on 29th August 2009.
In 2009, Rosie Collum appeared on the popular TV Game Show and won €37,000. The sisters were then blown away when the name of her identical twin, Maggie, was pulled out of the game show drum a decade later to appear on the show tomorrow Saturday, 26th January.
However, Maggie has decided to shun the limelight and has asked Rosie to appear on the show on her behalf this weekend, making it a double appearance for Rosie in ten years.
Twin sisters, Rosie and Maggie Collum, from Falcarragh.
The “twinning streak” story has captured the imagination of locals in Falcarragh and the sisters have been treated like celebrities this week.
According to Rosie a simple trip to the shops, which normally takes a half hour, is taking three. She is thankful and appreciative of all the attention and congratulations messages from her neighbours. In fact, a huge gang of friends will gather at their local pub, the Corner Bar in Falcarragh, to watch the show on Saturday evening.
When Rosie appeared on the show a decade ago she had just bought a house and used her winnings to furnish it. Rosie was sitting in the same house with her twin Maggie and their mum, Annie, watching Winning Streak last Saturday when, to their shock, they heard Maggie’s name get pulled out of the drum.
The three made a lot of noise in celebration and excitement and pretty quickly Maggie decided that she would let her sister play in her place - after all, she has done this before.
