A CO Waterford tractor salesman will be hoping that his luck is in this week when he takes part in the National Lottery TV gameshow, Winning Streak.
Mark Hennessy from Kill in Co Waterford got a late birthday surprise when his name was pulled out of the drum as he watched Winning Streak last Saturday night. Having turned 35 at the start of the month, he is sure to continue the celebrations.
It’s been a lucky year for Mark who married his partner of five years last month, Elaine Brazil. The couple met in Australia while Mark was travelling and hit it off.
A cabinet maker by trade, Mark works for Kill Agricultural Services where he is a tractor and farming machinery salesperson. Mark is a keen sportsman himself, who has played hurling for Waterford at under 21 and minor levels. He plays for his local club Kill GAA and is a massive fan of the Waterford hurling side.
Mark has sought advice from a friend who appeared on the show in the past and hopes to do as well as fellow Waterford man, Brian Fleming who won €64,000 back in 2008.
