Each of them won a tablet computer and have been offered training on using their new device by Denis Kelly at Inishowen Development Partnership. Neither Anna or John have ever used a tablet before but are looking forward to learning.
The clues were read out each day on the Greg Hughes Show at Highland Radio. John’s granddaughter Kelly Bonner entered each day on behalf of her grandfather. John said: “I enjoyed having to guess the clues each day and I would ring Kelly up with the answers for her to email them on my behalf”.
Anna who has a son living abroad said she was looking forward to learning how to Skype her son with the new device.

The clues and answers were as follows:
• Sounds like a very small deer = Fahan
• Large Irish sweater surrounded by water = Aranmore Island
• Part of a garment and ball game = Slieve League
• Hill for heir to throne = Mountcharles
• Ruby fortified building = Redcastle
