Winning Streak got off to a great start for Laois man Anthony Knowles on Saturday night as he won the very first competition on the popular TV show to take home a brand new car.
The father of three from Ballyroan won an electric Renault Zoe car worth €25,000 in the first ten minutes of the show on RTE One.
Anthony’s daughter Mary-Claire suffers from a rare but severe form of epilepsy which results in prolonged seizures. She captured the heart of the nation on a recent TV series ‘The Town’.
The Knowles family has to travel abroad for Mary-Claire's treatment so the appearance on Winning Streak has come at the right time.
Anthony went on to spin the big wheel on the show and won €24,000 bringing his total win to €57,000 including the value of the car.
