A Facebook competition for VIP tickets to Electric Picnic that Ulysses Pub organised earned more than 1,400 likes and a great prize for Colin Burke of Mullingar.
Colin was one of 20 finalists who were chosen from the Facebook entries, and were at Ulysses Pub in The Greville Arms Hotel last night (Thursday) for the draw. Each had to chose an envelope and Colin hit it lucky.
His prize, sponsored by Bacardi as well as Ulysses Pub, includes a pair of tickets to Electric Picnic with full camping, VIP access to the Bacardi stages, plus complimentary cocktails.
