All staff working for a licensed and bonded travel agency anywhere on the island of Ireland were eligible to vote and the voting forms were submitted directly to, and then independently collated and audited by, international accountants and consultants Grant Thornton.

All fully completed, eligible Voting Forms received were entered into a prize draw, with the winner being randomly selected by Grant Thornton’s computer.
