WINNING STREAK IS an Irish institution.

It may not involve any skill or talent, but it often produces accidental comedy gold. Here are just some of those occasions.

“Hmm? Oh €24,000 thousand in cash is it. Grand. ”
What a baller.

Babs was 96 years of age, waved her walking stick round like a madwoman, and was well able for Derek Mooney. In many ways, she epitomises Winning Streak.

10. And her signs. Just all of these signs

“Nanny Babs.” “Well Done Nanny.” “Well Done Babs”.
