Mick gets a mention at mass!

Wednesday, 17th January, 2018 5:13pm

Is there anything to be said for saying another mass? 

The tight-knit community of Eyeries on the scenic Beara Peninsula will be cheering on local man, Mick Brennan, when he takes part in Winning Streak this Saturday.

Mick said he has been blown away by the support and congratulations he has received from locals and friends after he was selected to appear on the iconic game show last Saturday night.

He even got a special mention from the local priest at mass the next morning!

The 71-year-old retired commercial truck driver was settled in front of the TV for the evening with his wife Regina when he heard his name called out by Winning Streak presenters, Marty Whelan and Sinead Kennedy.

He said the feeling was “completely surreal” and seconds later the phone rang and did not stop for two hours with well-wishers and family calling to congratulate him.

He has the Eyries Community Care group to credit for his upcoming appearance on the show as he got the scratch card at a Christmas bingo event they ran where everyone got a Winning Streak scratch card.

Now that he is retired Mick and his wife Regina have time to share common interests which include gardening and walking in the hills of the beautiful Beara peninsula. The couple are looking forward to the journey up to RTE Studios in Dublin.

The next episode of Winning Streak will be broadcast on Saturday 20 January at 8.15pm on RTÉ One.
