Sheila becomes third Carn lady on RTE show in a year
When Shelia Smith’s 10-year-old son Thomas scratched a scratch card she bought in her place of work to reveal three stars, she never dreamed that she would be become the third Carn woman in a year to appear on popular money game show Winning Streak.
But the popular mother-of-two’s dreams have been answered and this Saturday, the butcher from JJ Kelly’s Supermarket in Carn will take her coveted seat on the RTE One show with the chances of bagging €500,000 firmly in front of her.
But Shelia is not counting her chickens before they hatch just yet.
“I am still in shock,” she said. “I just can’t believe it, I watched Mary E (McDaid) on the show last year and I never dreamed it would be me – but now I’m the third person from Carn within the year.”
Sheila has been overwhelmed with the support she, and her husband Adrian, have received since her lucky ticket was pulled from the drum last Saturday evening.
