A TRALEE native had a reason to celebrate on US Independence Day when she found out she was the latest winner of the Cara Credit Union Members Car Draw.

Denise O’Dowd (nee Costello) lives in Dingle now, but is originally from Blackrock in Tralee and she was told on July 4 that she had won a brand new 192 Hyundai Kona purchased from Adams of Tralee.

Denise, who is a teacher in Scoil Eoin, Balloonagh, was at Cara Credit Union on Tuesday to collect the keys with her family — husband Seamus and children, Fionn, Oisin and Muireann.

Denise, daughter of Denis and Marian Costello, said; “I cannot believe that I won the car, It’s a prize of a lifetime. Obviously being a teacher in Tralee and living in Dingle, I am never off the road so this car will get plenty of mileage and it will be great to be able to drive in style. I have also been blown away by the spirit of goodwill from everyone since my name was chosen. People have been so kind and sincere and genuinely wishing me well.  It’s a great draw to be in.”

Cara Credit Union’s Members Car Draw is open to all Cara Credit Union members aged 18 years and over in Tralee, Castleisland and Killorglin.

Their car draw takes place 4 times a year and costs €6.00 per draw. Cara Credit Union’s next Members Car Draw takes place in October.
