A woman has claimed the largest ever cash prize won in Irish radio history as her children are called "the most polite kids in the country".

The woman, Sinéad Mullins from Galway, discovered she won the prize during a live call as part Today FM's daily Cash Machine game.

As GalwayBeo reports, presenter Barry Dunne helped Sinéad find out about her new-found fortune of over a whopping €130,000.

The interaction was captured on the Today FM social media channels.

Barry opens with: "It's Barry Dunne phoning from the cash machine. Can you take a cash machine call?"

Sinead responds in shock: "Oh my god. Oh my god sorry... yeah." She proceeds to read aloud the life-changing sum of money: "€133,456,77".

Confirming Sinéad as the luckiest winner in the history of Irish radio, Barry says: "Strike up the band. You've won the money".

Sinéad response with complete disbelief: "Oh my God, Oh my God. Thank you so much. This is amazing!"

Unbeknownst to Barry, Sinéad is sat beside her two children as she speaks to him on the phone. Sinéad can then be heard saying off to the side: "Guys, what do you say?"

Next can be heard two polite young voices saying: "thank you!"

"Oh my god the kids are so polite as well Sinead. I was going to go off on one about it being the biggest cash amount ever on Irish radio and the kids said thank you. That is so amazing."

The kids came back again with a second "thank you" before Sinead thanked Barry and Today FM again for awarding her the mouthwatering prize.

Sinéad and her lovely kids were not the first Galway people to be presented with riches from Today FM this week.

Only a few days ago, Robyn from Galway won a Mercedes Benz Career Kickstarter prize which included an airfryer, an iPhone, a tablet, a Macbook and a wad of 50 euro notes.

However, at this point, while celebrating what Robyn thought was a new Mercedez Benz, the Ooosch giveaway representative gave her an ultimatum.

"You have the choice between the car and a cash alternative. Do you want the car now you've had a chance to look at it or do you want 30 grand?"

Robyn ended up deciding that she would rather have the cash and declined the Mercedes, explaining: "I'll take the cash because I can't get insured on the car."
