Monday 6th September 2010.
The competition is now over! I was overwhelmed with the response from the 4 people who entered. Not a huge number, no…. but their enthusiasm and generosity of interest warmed my heart. One even went as far as inviting me to visit him in Canada! Another, (via email) who will remain nameless was unable to enter due to her lack of knowledge in this area, but she did mention that my own Tipperary won a different kind of competition in Croke Park yesterday. Against long time rivals Kilkenny, too.
Again and again it’s the simple things, I have been giggling away happily to myself as I imagine you reading and examining the picture and writing a reply, thousands of kilometres away from here. Technology seems to bring us closer, not isolate us. Thank you for your part in that.
Enjoy the revelation of the winner using the medium of pictures:
The answer was Dev who owns and runs the corner shop. The first correct answer was from Keith McCabe. Congratulations Keith! If you would be so good as to send a picture of yourself receiving your prize I will happily post it here.
