Scratch card puts Margaret in a spin!

MURRINTOWN LADY WINS €20,800

A LUCKY Murrintown lady got an early Christmas present when she won €20,800 on last Saturday's Winning Streak TV Gameshow.

Margaret Goff from Redshire Road, bought the lucky scratch card, which secured her appearance on the show, in a Spar in Celbridge, Co Kildare.

She won a handsome €20,800 on the show. Margaret, who works for Specsavers in Wexford, said she would like to treat herself to a holiday next year and she plans to spend some of her winnings on helping out her children. Margaret has been married to Jim for the past 33 years and they have three children; Claudine, Janette and Andrew. They have one precious grandson called Alfie, who is just six months old. Her daughter Janette and her fiancé are getting married in March, while her son Andrew is in Darwin at the moment and watched his mother on Winning Streak via Skype on Saturday night. Margaret, whose favourite pastime is knitting, said hello to her brother Walter and her sister Teresa during her TV appearance as they were not able to be there to root for her.
