McKinney Competitions have announced the winner of their “biggest-ever” competition, with one lucky family from Ballygawley claiming the grand prize.
Dad, Lee Galloway, said he was “still in shock” after receiving the phone call from McKinney’s to say that the villa was his.
Touted as McKinney Competitions‘ “biggest and most life-changing prize yet”, the four-bed luxury villa in the Algarve region of Portugal also came bundled with a pool, a VW seven-seater and £50,000 in spending money.
The lucky winner was landed with the enviable choice of deciding whether he wishes to take the villa prize, or walk away with the £500,000 tax-free cash alternative.
Speaking after the announcement, Lee said the win was “life-changing” and “superb” and that he was going to choose the villa, “100%, no doubt.”
Commenting on his reaction, Lee said: “It was weird, I don’t know how to explain it. It still doesn’t feel real.”
When asked if he had won anything before, Lee said: “No, I can’t even win an argument.”
