A Glenbeigh family have an extra €1,000 in their pockets - and just in time for the festive season - thanks to Lee Stand's Milk Doorstep Challenge.

Anthony Clifford won the sum and was delighted when he and his father Pat collected it from Lee Stand's headquarters in Tralee on Friday afternoon.

To celebrate one year since the launch of Lee Strand’s 100% renewable 2 litre cartons, Radio Kerry presenters travelled across the county to see who made the environmental switch and had the 2 litre cartons in their fridge.

On lucky day 13, Radio Kerry’s Alan Finn called to the Clifford household in mid-Kerry.

“Thanks a million it’s great, we are all big Lee Strand milk drinkers for years and the new 2 litre carton is fantastic for the environment," Anthony said. 

Anthony’s father Pat, who is 92 years young, mentioned that he has been drinking plenty of Lee Strand for over 70 years in his tea and recommended it highly to everybody.

A total of 14 daily finalists were delighted to receive a hamper full of Lee Strand products when Radio Kerry called to their home. The grand finale took place on Kerry’s Full Breakfast when Andrew Morrissey drew Anthony Clifford’s name.

“We were delighted with the return of the Lee Strand Doorstep Challenge on Radio Kerry," Gearoid Linnane, CEO said.

"The response has been very positive a year on since we launched our new 2 litre cartons. We would like to thank our customers for their continued support and for making the switch from plastic.”

Ian O’Connell said he is delighted with the messages of support following his first broadcast as a presenter on Radio Kerry this week.

The well-known and popular Killarney man was left with life-changing injuries after falling from his bike in Killarney National Park in 2017.

Since the accident he has been a champion for the less fortunate under his mantra: “If you can’t stand up – standout”.

This was the inspiration behind his brand new radio show which aired for the first time on Wednesday evening.

‘Stand Out with Ian O’Connell’ will feature interviews with people who have overcome great adversary to reach even greater heights.

His first guest was fellow Killarney man Jordan Lee. The Paralympian represented Ireland in the Tokyo Olympics this summer.

“I was used to being in the studio from people interviewing me, but this time I turned the table,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.

“It was great to have Jordan on, two Killarney men! I really enjoyed it, it got a massive reaction and I got loads of emails and messages afterwards and into Thursday morning.”

Ian will reveal his guest for the show on the previous Monday through various social media channels.
