evening, we have just announced our winner of the Littlewoods Ireland
€1500 voucher. It was actually very difficult,
but we did it and I’m really happy with our winner we’ve
had a fantastic day I’m from Curraghmore in Kiltoom, I’m
originally from Holland, we came over 1974 and how often were you in Roscommon Racecourse? This year and two years ago we came and we didn’t enter into the
ladies’ competition that time we said we have a go at it time, we
intend to coming last year, but it didn’t happen and then I was here I think about 1975
and I put fifty pence on a horse and won and I was delighted with myself! So I’ll have to come more often now.
Well done! and I hope you spend the €1500 voucher
from Littlewoods very well. I will, I will, I’ll have great pleasure
spending it and if i don’t my daughter Ceanna is seventeen and she’ll definately help me spend it!
