Brian Enright, proprietor of the Cross Bar at Cork Road, Fermoy is a very popular son this week having won a total of €32,000 for his father John Enright on the Winning Streak last Saturday night.
The Fermoy publican, who is originally from Bruff in County Limerick, played in the National Lottery TV gameshow on behalf of his father who is 80 years old.
On hearing that his father John had been selected to play on the gameshow, Brian drove home to visit his parents the following day and this is when John asked his son to take part in Winning Streak in his place.
There was a huge crowd gathered in the Cross Bar on Saturday night to watch their local barman gather the gold.
Brian’s parents John and Mary, his wife Siobhan and two of his children Conor and Kate, watched nervously from the studio audience while Brian’s other son, Barry, watched from his home in Nenagh in North Tipperary.
