Last week, with a free family pass to see the Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup™ this Friday at the Dublin Horse Show on offer, we asked you:

Why you would deserve such a prize?

‘Neighbour from Heaven’ won the pass with this desperate plea:

“Not wishing to be pushy,but I deserve the family ticket as my landlord has decided to sell up. The wife and our two kids have been lucky to find a new place to reside but the rent increases by €300 a month. We both work full time and any savings are now going to be lost on rent. She’s horse mad. Please give her something nice. Please :(“

Thanks all

I lknow you don’t normally do this but I lost my phone last Saturday night in Malahide, [Dublin 13] or in the taxi that dropped me back to [nearby] Bayside

The phone is a Samsung Galaxy S7, it’s not in a case but it is in good condition except for a small chip to the screen. The only identifiable mark is a sticker on the back with a barcode and IMEI number.

The phone itself wouldn’t turn on for me (which is why I took it out of its case) but it contains a micro SD card with all my photos on it. No luck at Garda station or cab company.

Most of the photos are of my son since birth, and it was his 1st birthday this weekend so the photos are a particularly big loss…
