Twinning Streak for Donegal
A DONEGAL twin has been
selected to appear on the Winning Streak TV Game
Show ten years after her identical sister appeared
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,
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.
