Winner of IrishCentral’s iPad competition announced
Another IrishCentral reader scoops top prize
The lucky winner of IrishCentral’s October competition is Chicago based Mary McCarthy.
McCarthy, who traces her Irish roots to Co. Cork, Mayo, and Westmeath, received a brand new iPad 2 compliments of IrishCentral. The mother-of-two entered into the competition by simply becoming a member of IrishCentral.com in the month of October.
“I am very appreciative of this terrific and generous gift from IrishCentral,” McCarthy said.
“I've been a subscriber to IrishCentral for about 3 months and really enjoy reading the business and human interest articles almost daily.

“It's a great way to stay in touch with what's happening in Ireland,” she added.
The Illinois resident recently obtained her Irish citizenship by descent and now proudly holds dual U.S. and Irish citizenship. Her grandparents, Thomas Mulkeen and Catherine (nee Monaghan) Mulkeen, emigrated to the United States in 1914.
“I am hopeful that I will be able to use my new passport frequently to visit Ireland. Until then, I will continue to read IrishCentral.com to keep abreast of daily life in Ireland,” she told Irish Central.
