Lucky Laois family wins holiday to Florida with Eddie Rocket's

A lucky Laois family has won a holiday to Florida thanks to an Eddie Rocket's competition. 

The Dunphy family from Portarlington are off to Florida after winning a €5,000 holiday.

The lucky family – dad Fergus, mum Siobhan and daughters Zoe (18) and Emma (20) – are off to Florida after winning the holiday in the States courtesy of Eddie Rockets.

They came out tops in a nationwide competition which saw thousands of entries hoping to win the generous prize.

The Dunphys, who hail from Ullard, Portarlington, have never been to the United States before so Florida and famous attractions such as Disneyworld are top of their list.

Sinead Barry is Manager of Eddie Rocket’s in Portlaoise, where the Dunphy’s are regular customers.

“Siobhan couldn’t believe it when she got the call from Eddie’s and her husband Fergus even thought she was playing a joke on him when she broke the good news.”
