Douglas native wins five star trip to the Big Apple worth €20K

Cork’s first winner of Play or Park!

A Cork man is looking forward to a very special 2014 after he won an all expenses paid luxury trip for four to New York in Topaz’s Play or Park loyalty game.

Edward Creedon from Grangewood Court in Douglas – Cork’s first winner – says the news is still only sinking in that he won the November prize which is valued at €20K.

“I’ve never been to New York and was only in America once and that was 13 years ago. I’ve never won anything. If there was only one ticket in a draw I’d hardly win it” Edward joked.

His prize includes return flights to NY for four adults, four nights in the 5 star Trump Soho Hotel, €8K spending money and a 3 hour personal shopping experience.

The 39 year old Health & Safety training officer is looking forward to bringing his dad on the trip.

“Sadly my mum passed away earlier this year but clearly she’s still looking after me. My dad has a great interest in history and we’ll be visiting Ellis Island for sure and tracing the stories of any Creedons who emigrated to the US. And hitting the shops of course!” Edward said.

He also paid tribute to all the staff at his local Topaz Frankfield service station. “I always get my petrol, newspapers and coffee at Frankfield. I’m in and out of the place all the time. The manager Keith and the staff are really friendly and couldn’t do enough for you. They always made sure I collected my points and I’m sure glad they did now!” Edward said.

Laura Murphy, who is Loyalty Manager at Topaz said everyone at Topaz, especially Frankfield was delighted for Edward.

“Edward is our first winner from Leeside and we are thrilled for him. He’s going to have an unforgettable time in NY in the Spring. Play or Park is all about rewarding customers like Edward. Over two hundred thousand have already signed up to play and we hope many more will do so. Next month it could be you!” Laura said.

The Play or Park prize for December is a brand new five door Seat Mii Sport with free motor fuel for a year and up to €2K to cover motor insurance and car tax. For more information go to
