A TRALEE woman will enjoy a great start to 2019 as she was the latest winner in the Cara Credit Union Cara Members Draw.

The draw itself took place at the Cara Credit Union on Monday, December 7, but the winner didn’t find out until a day later when by chance she was in the offices in Ashe Street.

Tara Flynn, originally from Lohercannan, but now living in Racecourse Heights, won the brand new 191 Kia Stonic purchased from McElligotts Tralee Ltd.

Speaking to Tara as she collected her car from Cara Credit Union on Thursday, she said; “I am absolutely delighted. I cannot believe I won the car. I was actually in the credit union the morning after their AGM opening a new born account for my daughter when Shane from the credit union asked was I the car draw member.”

“I told him no, as no one had contacted me, so he went and checked and hadn’t they been trying to phone me all morning but had an incorrect number for me. What a coincidence that I happen to call in that morning to open a newborn account.”

“None of us could believe the coincidence. My car is 11 years old and we were actively in the market for a brand new car this month so it comes at an opportune time. It’s a great start to the new year,” she added.

Tara wasn’t the only member to benefit from Cara Credit Union’s December Members Car Draw.  The surplus funds left over from 2018 was raffled out to their car draw members in the form of cash prizes and 31 other members won €1,000 each in time for Christmas.
