WINNING STREAK COMES TO ARAGLI
Lady luck turned her attention to the Araglin area last weekend when the name of Paul Hynes emerged from the drum during the popular RTE game show Winning Streak. 7-year-old Paul is the grandson of Michael Hynes Snr. who purchased the all important ticket in Roche’s Spar Supermarket, Mitchelstown.
Paul’s parents, Michael jnr and Nina are part of a 22 strong group making the trip to Dublin this weekend for what promises to be a very profitable exercise. Paul has one sister, Laura and 3 brothers – Joseph, Jason and Joshua. Nina will represent Paul on the show.
The Hynes family from the townland of Billerough are well known in Araglin and are prominent in community activities – Mary Hynes, Paul’s grandmother is involved with the ladies club while his father Michael Jnr is part of the community alert initiative.
They’ve been hard at work during the week putting the finishing touches to their posters which viewers will see on Saturday night. They’ve received loads of good wishes and locals are delighted at their wonderful bit of luck.
The management and staff at Roche’s Spar Supermarket have offered their best wishes to Paul Hynes and his family for a successful outing to RTE.
