One Dundalk street has enjoyed a 'lotto' luck on national gameshow 'Winning Streak' with the third person to take home a prize confirmed last weekend.

Fr. Murray Park has had more than its fair share of success over the years as another local woman also scooped a lotto win.

But it was 42 year old Oliver McConnon's chance to shine on Winning Streak as he won a €15,000 prize.

Oliver, who works as an electronic technician in Xerox in Dundalk bought his winning ticket at the Londis, Castletown Road

Oliver was thrilled with his big win and celebrated with his mother, Kathleen who he lives with in their family home.

He has two older sisters, Elaine and Fiona and two nephews and a niece.

Oliver is a Dundalk FC and Liverpool fan

He loves to travel especially to the US. He loves the theme parks in Florida and the beaches of the west and east coast.

Asked what he planned to do with the winnings, Oliver said has never been to New York City and would consider going there with his Winning Streak prize. He would also like to take his family away on holiday.

Oliver's whole family were in the audience of Winning Streak studio last weekend with his godparents, Gerard and Ann, his friends and some colleagues from work.
