A retired naval officer from Co. Mayo, now living in Cork, won €31,000 on the National Lottery Winning Streak TV game show on RTÉ One on Saturday.

Martin Doran, originally from Bangor Erris in Co. Mayo, moved to Cork to join the Navy in 1975. He met his wife of 41 years, Christine, soon after.

Martin retired in 2017 after 42 years service  and ended his naval career as a Warrant Officer.

The couple have two daughters, Michelle and Carol, and are proud grandparents to six grandkids.

He comes from a large family being one of 14 siblings in his house in Mayo growing up. He has brothers and sisters all over the world (in London, Spain and Chicago) as well as in Mayo so there was a big contingent from Mayo and Cork supporting him on the night.
