Following a nationwide competition featuring approximately 4,000 entries from every county in the Republic of Ireland, local man Cathal Daly of Total Roofing & Restorations Ltd. has been named as the winner of a brand new Peugeot Boxer van, courtesy of Homevalue.


Cathal, from Tynock, Kiltegan, was announced as the overall competition winner at a special prize giving party hosted by the Lambert Hardware Homevalue in Hacketstown today. The party featured showcasings from a number of industry suppliers including Dulux, Snickers, Makita, Bostik, Glennon Brothers and Brett Martin, and welcomed locals to come and join in on the antics.


Cathal is a regular customer of the hardware store and accepting the prize, he said, “I am absolutely thrilled with the win and would like to thank all the team at Lambert Hardware Homevalue. It’s a fantastic initiative and it’s particularly great to see the hardware industry supporting the trade so strongly.”


The competition initiative, which aimed to acknowledge the enormous contribution of local tradespeople to the hardware industry, is the first of a number of similar initiatives planned by Homevalue and Peugeot as part of a national partnership between the organisations.


As part of the competition, a show model Peugeot Boxer traveled to each of Homevalue’s 50 nationwide stores and was accompanied by showcasings from some of Homevalue’s many suppliers at numerous in-store special trade events. The new Peugeot Boxer was recently crowned overall Van of the Year 2015.


Congratulating Cathal Daly, Michael Lambert said, “With an increase in the building trade, we in Lambert Hardware are keen to show our support to our customers. I’m delighted to see one of our customers rewarded with this very special prize and I wish Cathal all the best with his new van.”
