Athy businessman Ian Walsh was thrilled when one of his customers, Lisa Maguire, was announced the winner of a mini-iPad through a competition in his company’s e-newsletter.

Ian runs his own travel company from home as a franchise of Travel Counsellors, one of Ireland’s largest independent travel companies.

“Our brand new e-newsletter was the first one sent out to a database of 25,000 people across Ireland so I was delighted when it turned out that one of my customers that had won,” said Ian.

Lisa has been a loyal client for over three years, often referring my business to her friends and family. I always want to show my gratitude to loyal customers and I feel this is a novel way for me to indirectly say thank you.”

Lisa Maguire said: “When Ian called to say I was the winner of the mini iPad it was such a lovely surprise! I’ve been booking my holidays with Ian for the past three years, the service he provides is second to none and he has the patience of a saint. I always say I have the best travel adviser in Ireland, and this prize helps to confirm that!”
