NO REPRO FEE 002 Radio Nova Noise.jpg
. 27/7/2022. Pictured, Gary O’Rourke, following their €10,250 win in the long-running Nova Noise competition with PJ Gallagher and Jim McCabe on Radio Nova. After 259 days of guessing, the biggest cash prize in Radio Nova’s 11-year history was finally won by Gary O’Rourke, 32 from Skerries. The winning call was made during “Marty@Work” with Marty Miller on Monday when Gary correctly guessed that the Nova Noise was an egg being dropped into a carton and taken out again. The O’Rourke family plan to use the prize money for a holiday with their 8-month-old daughter Thea who was born a month after the contest began. On his winning strategy, Gary said: “We used all the clues and wrong guesses to recreate the noise at home. It’s been a great family activity for us every day and although we’re delighted to have won, we’ll miss the challenge of it.” The Nova Noise has been running since November 8th 2021 with thousands of guesses made. Radio Nova’s PJ Gallagher and Jim McCabe said: “We are delighted for Gary and his family and also delighted that Nova’s hardest, and possibly longest, challenge yet is over and people might stop asking us what the Nova Noise is!”.Photo: Leon Farrell/Photocall Ireland
