Kathy Shine was the winner of a recent Late Late Show competition, run in conjunction with Renault Ireland and An Post.
Kathy won a fabulous Renault Captur worth €20,000 from 200,000 entries to the An Post competition. Kathy says she turned to the power of prayer in a bid to win the car so she could sell it so that her brother, Mike, could update his disability van.
A grateful Kathy subsequently visited RTÉ to drop off a thank you card for Late Late host Ryan Tubridy. However, she happened across him outside the RTÉ canteen and Ryan was so taken with her story and selflessness that he invited her onto the show to share her extraordinary story.
Not only will she now have a Renault car, but Renault are now going to give the family an extra €5,000 to help to kit out the new car to make it suitable for Mike.
