It’s St Patrick’s Day and we thought we’d try and introduce a new feature on the blog by rounding up some competitions fitting for the day. Before anyone says “what about Wales/England/Scotland” etc… we’ll try and remember to do them in the future – mainly as it will give us an excuse to show off our new look seasonal logos too.
If you hadn’t noticed, Loquax has had a logo change and as part of that decision we commissioned a whole bunch of new special day logos for the likes of Easter, Christmas, Halloween and Saints Days amongst others. Here’s our new duck logo for St Patrick’s Day:
More importantly though how about a few competitions tp celebrate St Patrick’s Day. We expect to see a fair few one off competitions on Twitter, but there are some Ireland related prizes currently available in our competition listings.
For example The Independent are giving away a weekend for two in Dublin as part of their weekly promotion with Hotels.com. If you win you’ll be staying at the five-star The Fitzwilliam Hotel. Be quick as the closing date is noon on the 19th March.
If you fancy trying Northern Ireland then take a trip to Costcutter before the 27th March. They’ve teamed up with Tayto Nation to offer a break for two people in a Northern Ireland Hastings Hotel of their choice. You’ll get to enjoy 2 nights B&B and one evening meal (hopefully one each though). The bad news is you have to make your own way there.
Staying with Tayto Nation, they’ve just launched a brand new competition that offers mugs, umbrellas, mousemats and other goodies every day. There are also trips to London on offer with travel from Dublin and Belfast, so the big prizes are pretty much aimed at Irish residents. Just pick up codes from Tayto Crisps to enter the competition.
Disappointingly there aren’t many competitions around to Guinness. The best we can find is Guinness Mini Fridge that’s currently being given away by Nisa Tooday. The prize draw ends on the 27th March and you can enter daily for extra entries.
Some of you like the bingo and as you’d expect there are a few promotions going on in that sector too. Expect big celebrations at Ireland based Paddy Power Bingo, win a trip to Dublin with Crown Bingo plus look out for some free games and bonuses from Foxy Bingo.
Have a good St Patrick’s Day if you’re celebrating and let’s hope the luck of the Irish is with all Loquax Compers for the rest of the year!
