Someone out there is €10,000 richer and doesn’t know it yet – as a local business won €10k in cash for one lucky customer.

This week, Daly’s SuperValu on Park Road, who sold an RTE ONE Telly Bingo ticket before June 11, received a call asking them to take part on the popular ‘Phone Risk’ game as the Lotto couldn’t make contact with the ticket holder.

Denis Tucker, Duty Manager with the store, stepped into the breech on Tuesday and managed to scoop a €10k cash prize for the lucky punter.

However, now the store and the National Lottery are calling for the winner to come forward - saying they have just 90 days to claim their prize.

“Lotto contacted us on Friday,” Denis explained to the Killarney Advertiser.

“The customer who bought the Telly Bingo ticket was picked out to play the phone game but Lotto couldn’t contact them and asked us to play on their behalf.”

However, Denis, unsure which colour balls to choose in the game, sought the advice of staff member Áine Griffin who is a dab hand at the TV game.

“For the rehearsal I asked Áine what I should go for and she said pick them in the order of white, black and black.”

And for the real game on TV, Áine advised him to play in the same order.

“She was right!,” he said. “With Phone Risk you’re guaranteed €1k but if you get the three right – it’s €10k.”

The lucky winner has until Friday, September 4 to claim their prize. If you think you have the winning ticket you can claim your prize by calling the Claims Team on 01 83636 44.

Ireland’s newest cycling event comes to Kenmare this month with an exciting and challenging course for the experienced cyclist.

Already attracting attention within cycling communities around the country, Velo Kenmare will tackle some of Kerry’s toughest climbs and highest mountain passes.

Taking place on October 22, Velo Kenmare is an 135km timed loop route starting and finishing in Kenmare. The total climbing distance is 1,650m, and organisers hope to appeal to serious cyclists who are looking for a new and thrilling challenge.

No stranger to cycling events, Velo Kenmare is being managed by Elite Events Management, who also successfully deliver iconic cycling events Wicklow 200, Ride Dingle and the Ring of Beara Cycle.
Cyclists are encouraged to register for Velo Kenmare on the Velo Cycle Ireland website www.velocycleireland.ie but places are limited for the enjoyment and safety of all participants, and anyone interested is urged to sign up soon as places are filling up.

TOUGH CLIMBS

​​​​The tough enough mountain climbs are over Molls Gap, Ballaghbeama Pass, Ballaghasheen and Coomakista. The route will take in breathtaking scenery Kenmare is famous for, and incorporating some of the most stunning parts of the Wild Atlantic Way and Ring of Kerry. It is hoped visitors to the cycle event will be encouraged to stay for a few days, and will all be given €20 vouchers or ‘Velo Dollars’ to spend in local shops which will be redeemable against goods and services in Kenmare.

Riders will be allotted a time slot to allow for a staggered start, taking them along a fully marshalled route, with medical cover, bike mechanic support, and hot food and entertainment at the finish in Kenmare.

Making its mark, Velo Kenmare participant race packs will come inside a yellow Velo Kenmare water bottle and finishers’ medals are in the shape of a yellow cow bell. Prizes will be awarded for the quickest top three male and top three female finishers, and fastest male and female will be awarded the title of King and Queen of the Kerry Mountains.

Experienced cyclists are encouraged to take on this exciting new challenge, testing themselves and their clubmates for the fastest finish across these four gruelling climbs, through some of the most beautiful landscape in the country for the best welcome back at the finish.
