Crossmaglen girl wins trip of a lifetime in Coca Cola promotion

July 10, 2017

A Crossmaglen girl is on cloud nine after scooping the trip of a lifetime in a Coca Cola promotion with a bottle bought from Mace in Newtownhamilton. Twent five year old Kirsty Liddy entered the Coca Cola Dream Holiday promotion after buying a few bottles of the fizzy favourite from the Newtownhamilton Mace store and entering the promotional codes online.  The summer promotion daily draws have seen hundreds of winners receive fantastic holiday prizes to the best summer destinations around the world, from Ibiza to Bali, Miami to Phuket. 

A shocked Kirsty told The Examiner she was amazed to receive confirmation the day after she entered the codes that she had won a 7 night 4 star trip for 3 people to Hong Kong!   Even after receiving the call, Kirsty says she still couldn’t quite believe her luck.

“Even after I’d spoken to Coca Cola I thought it could be all fake! I couldn’t get my head round it and thought maybe someone was hacking me!” she said.

Having been convinced that she is in fact the lucky winner of the dream destination holiday, Kirsty now faces the task of choosing a third person to join her and her boyfriend on the amazing trip – which includes half board accommodation in a 4 star hotel in Hong Kong. And she expects she could have quite a few possible takers, with friends and family all vying for the coveted third ticket!

In the meantime, Kirsty is looking forward to the trip to a holiday destination she “never imagined going to.”

“Hong Kong is not somewhere I would have dreamed of choosing for a holiday so I’m absolutely delighted to be going somewhere so different and seeing a country I otherwise would probably never have travelled to.”

In the meantime Kirsty will be busy planning for the once in a lifetime trip which she hopes to take in October.  Congratulations to Kirsty and her chosen holidaymakers on winning such a fantastic prize!
