The winners of the overall top prize of a magnum of champagne were (we modestly report!) Team 3 comprising Travel Counsellors John and Mary Foyle, Lorraine Lawless, Bernie Whelan, Sherry Meagle, Kay Marshall, Karen Maloney, Etihad Airways, and Neil Steedman, Irish Travel Trade News. At the beginning each team had to give themselves a name and Team 3, with great confidence and foresight, had named themselves ‘The Winners’!
