[Competition] Christmas Giveaway #4 - Little Christmas at Roganstown

This competition is now closed and I am process of notifying the lucky winner. Thank you very much to all those who entered.

It's time for Giveaway #4 in my Christmas series of cheer, and this prize is a goodie. When I made my Twitter requests for prize sponsorship back in early November, I was blown away by the generosity of those who responded to me. In these tough times, there are companies out there who want to give away some prizes and spread some happiness.  Andy Greenslade, manager of Roganstown Hotel & Country Club, was one of the earliest to respond. When he emailed later to confirm the prize, I was gobsmacked, and delighted to be able to offer this lovely prize. 

Roganstown House will host a special event to celebrate Little Christmas (or Nollaig na mBan). January 6th signals the end of the 12 days of Christmas, and this old Irish tradition dictates that men do the chores, while the womenfolk get to relax from all that Christmas work and celebrate their Christmas. Roganstown House are delighted to offer an overnight stay for 4 people on January 6th, which will also take in dinner at the Little Christmas event. So if you want to treat your mother to a little break, or reward yourself after a hard Christmas, then this is the event for you.

To win, just answer the following question: On what date in January does Little Christmas or Nollaig na mBan fall? (Hint: Check out the text above)

Please email your answer to with your name, contact details and answer. Alternatively, you can leave a comment below, but please make sure that you are contactable. The competition will close on Sunday December 16th Wednesday December 19th, at 6pm, and the lucky winner will be chosen from the pool of correct answers.

Tickets for the Little Christmas event at Roganstown cost €25 per head, and include a mulled wine reception and a four course dinner in their McLoughlin's Restaurant. Discounted overnight packages are available if you want to make a night of it.  More details, including how to book, can be found here
