Adrian was happy with
having to wait five weeks for his Winning Streak
appearance as he has just moved into his new
refurbished home with his girlfriend Lisa. The
couple, who have been together for more than five
years, bought their first house together in May.
Their new home needed some refurbishment, so Adrian
had been working away on it with every spare hour he
had and the couple moved in just a couple of days
before Christmas. Its been a busy time for Adrian,
who works as a Bid Manager for Boyle Construction in
Lisa, his parents Eileen and Charlie and his sister
Catriona cheered Adrian on from the audience at the
RTE studio. They were also joined by a number of his
friends and other family members.
In his spare time, Adrian loves sport and plays
soccer for Gleneely Colts FC, where he plies his
trade in centre midfield. He is also a keen golfer
and plays off six. His local course is Ballyliffin
