Great excitement as Ivan wins new car
Ivan Smyth was the big winner of Blessington Credit Union's annual car draw held over Easter.
Ivan popped into the credit union offices recently to collect his prize presented to him by Blessington Credit Union Chairperson, Michael Doyle.
The car draw commenced in 2003 and is now well established and continues to grow year by year. To date in excess over 2,000 members have signed up to participate.
Liam McCarthy was second for the Easter Draw and received a cheque for €1,000.
John Richardson was third and was presented with €500. In fourth place was Joseph Clarke Senior who collected €300.
Kathleen Keogh was awarded €200 for finishing fifth.
Currently, Blessington Credit Union hold four draws a year, in November, February, Easter weekend and August.
Car draw members will also be entered into a Christmas Cash Draw and this fund amounts to whatever surplus is left from that year.
