Local Woman Never Wins Anything, Would Love To Win Facebook Competition


A WATERFORD mother-of-three has issued a heartbreaking missive on her Facebook page to accompany the sharing of a competition for cobblelock paving by a local company, in which she stresses how she would love to win the €1,000 worth of paving slabs as she “never wins anything”.

Janet Kirkham, 36, took part in the ‘like and share to enter’ competition posted on Facebook by ‘Hannigan & Sons Asphalt, Patio and Paving specialists’ in which one winner will have their driveway revamped with new paving in a colour of their choice.

The competition was the 6th that Mrs. Kirkham entered that day, each with a note added about how much she would love to win the weekend away/gas boiler service/€80 hair voucher/miscellaneous prizes.

In all instances, no competition had asked more of entrants other than to like their page and share the post, but that didn’t stop Dungarvan native Kirkham from adding a little plea with each shared post, with her desire to win paving bricks proving to be particularly heartbreaking.

“xXx would love to win dis, never win anything,” wrote Ms. Kirkham while sharing.

“Kids love playn football in drive3way, would be great if had better surface so lots of love for this prize, can move d car out of way LOL LOL share this page would love to win!!!!1”.

As the draw nears, the entire nation holds its breath.
