The November draw for the Ardee Credit Union Members Car Draw took place a week ago on Saturday morning last at the Credit Union branch in the town – and Patrick Rafferty of Springhill in Tallanstown is this month’s lucky winner.

Patrick’s name was drawn out at the branch Credit Union offices in Ardee and he is now the proud owner of a brand new Seat Toledo car, supplied courtesy of Conachy’s Garage in Dunleer.


Patrick called into the Ardee branch on Church Hill in the town on Tuesday afternoon to collect his prize from branch manager Niall Lambert and he was notably thrilled with his surprise win.

His win follows previous winner James Durrigan Jnr from Stickillen and Jason McDonnell from Mullacloe who won the car in the September draw of the popular members initiative. After four straight months of ladies’ winning cars earlier in the year, Patrick, James, and Jason consecutive wins certianly points to the men being on a roll of their own now!

This month’s prize of a Seat Toledo is the 107th car be to be given away by the Credit Union in the monthly car draws.

Each month, the Ardee Credit Union Members Car Draw gives members the chance to win a new vehicle to drive away in. Since the competition began ten years ago – in 2006 – Ardee Credit Union itself has given away over €1.6 million in prizes, including the 107 cars and over €65,000 in additional cash prizes.

In the last year, they have given away 11 cars and €7,000 in additional prizes to their members.

Any adult member of the Credit Union can enter the monthly draw. All they have to do is become a car draw member, at a cost of €60 for the full year beginning in October of each year.

The draw is completely funded through car draw membership fees. To become a car draw member, just call into the branch and fill in an application form today.
