“Home to Ireland” 2016

Our “Home to Ireland” competition 2016 grand prize draw is nearly here! Celtic Elegance carried out their local draw last night, September 15th, at Sumter Landing, The Villages, Central Florida.

Celtic Elegance, found in both Spanish springs and Sumter Landing, is hosting a chance for a lucky winner and his or her guest to travel to the Emerald Isle and experience the wonders of Ireland. It’s an opportunity to stay in superior first class hotels, enjoy a medieval banquet in a 15th century castle, a jaunting car ride, traditional Irish entertainment and historical visits and presentations – all part of the fabulous grand prize “Home to Ireland” giveaway which will take place on Tuesday 20th September, 2016.

The lucky winners of the grand prize will see the splendor of Ireland without having to worry about driving on the “wrong” side of the road! As guests of CIE Tours International, they will enjoy a 7-day luxury coach tour, which will take them to Dublin, Waterford, Clare and Killarney stopping along the way to experience the rich history and awesome beauty of Ireland.

As well as an opportunity to acquire the ‘gift of the gab” by kissing the famed Blarney Stone the tour also includes a visit to the Cliffs of Moher, the Ring of Kerry and Cobh Heritage Centre which traces the history of emigration from Ireland to North America.

Our other co-sponsor is NACTA- The North American Celtic Trade Association. NACTA works to help independent retailers based here in the USA and Canada and back in the old country to promote their businesses whilst also encouraging tourism and business exchanges. It is a great organization.

Celtic Elegance’s second runner up winner is Warren Babb from Cape Coral, Florida. He will receive a sterling silver Celtic pendant.

The first runner up winner is Laura Cox from McHenry, Illinois and she also will receive a sterling silver Celtic pendant.

Our local prize draw winner is Lynn Marlin from Ocala, Florida, and she will receive a $100.00 gift certificate from Celtic Elegance and her ticket goes into the grand prize draw on Tuesday , 20th at the NACTA meeting. Good luck, Lynn! We are  thrilled for you!

Thank you all very much for participating. We look forward to you joining us for “home to Ireland” 2017
