The Wexford People team made another five lucky readers €20 richer this week when they paid a visit to several local shops as part of the Buy and Win promotion.

John Murphy from Church View was thrilled to receive the prize when he was out buying a copy of his favourite local newspaper in Tesco, Distillery Road. An avid reader, he scans each page from cover to cover before sending it over to friends in London each week. According to John, the former Wexford residents share the newpaper between them and are more up to date on local news than he is.

Over at Kiely's Centre in Killinick, local man Liam McHugh couldn't believe his luck when he was approached by the Wexford People team and told he was a winner. As he walked out of his local store €20 richer, he joked about following us on to our next destination to bag some more cash for himself!

Mary Kirwan was picking up her shopping in her local SuperValu in Rosslare and made sure to grab a copy of this week's Wexford People. Little did she know, her purchase would win her the prize of €20. The beaming Rosslare resident said she was delighted to get such a pleasant surprise on a Tuesday morning.

Jim Parle from Drinagh was in the right place at the right time when he picked up a copy of the Wexford People in Roches Shop on the Rosslare Road. The loyal reader is looking forward to spending his well-deserved winnings in the coming days.

Although he joked that he was disappointed he didn't have his make-up on for a photo, nothing could wipe the smile off Mark Reide's face when he was handed €20 by the Wexford People team. He picked up his prize when he was purchasing a few things in his local shop Londis of Piercestown last Tuesday morning.
