Joan wins Big Money!

OVER €30,000 was scooped by one lucky Ballymaclare woman when she appeared on the National Lottery's The Big Money Game on Saturday night.
Joan Bennett won €30,500 on the TV gameshow.
The one and only night Joan missed the Big Money Game was last weekend during the JFK50 celebrations when her name was announced as one of the contestants for the following weekend. There was so much going on in New Ross last weekend with the Kennedy clan celebrations, and her niece Dianne was home from Guernsey, so she went to the pub to meet her.
One of her sisters rang with the news and people in the pub thought Joan was having a heart attack from the way she reacted to hearing of her luck.
Joan, who works in Whispers on Quay Street, says she is going to treat herself to a new kitchen.
