Killarney man drives into 2014 in style after winning new Toyota Auris

13 Feb 2014

Second Killarney winner in Topaz Play or Park in matter of months!

Killarney man Sean Myers is driving into 2014 in style after winning a brand new car worth almost €20,000 in Topaz’s Play or Park loyalty game.

Sean, who lives in Oakhill, Ballydribbeen in Killarney, is now the proud owner of a brand new five door Toyota Auris Terra 1.33 after he claimed the Play or Park prize for January.

He is the second Killarney man to win the Play or Park prize in just five months after Michael Dinneen won last September’s prize.

Sean, who’s married to Pearl and has three children; Adele (16), Keith (12) and Amy (10) said he was shocked when he got the call from Topaz.

“I drive a van with Myers Haulage so I’m up and down the country all the time. I signed up to Play or Park six or seven months ago and I haven’t looked back. I always look forward to the treat at the end of the month and that’s what I like about the game – everybody’s a winner! But I didn’t expect to get the call I got I can tell you. I was totally gobsmacked, speechless when I heard I’d won the car” Sean said.

The forty six year old also said they’d been thinking of getting a car. “We had been looking, but we hadn’t found anything. We’re not looking anymore, that’s for sure. So the timing was great and it’s a mighty boost to get at this time of the year” he said.

Laura Murphy, Loyalty Manager with Topaz said everyone at Topaz in Killarney and around the country was delighted for Sean. 

“Play or Park is all about rewarding regular customers like Sean and we wish him and all the family many years of happy motoring. That’s two Killarney winners we’ve had so maybe there’s something in the water around here” Laura joked.

The Topaz loyalty game Play or Park is just a year old and already has over 210,000 registered players. The February prize is free motor fuel, free home heating and free coffee for three people for a year.

Later in 2014 there will be chances to win three more new Toyotas, which as with the Auris combine confident sporty looks with excellent fuel efficiency and low emissions. There will also be all expenses paid trips to a range of top destinations including Bali, New York, Monaco, California and the Bahamas.
