John Lynch has been announced as one of five winners of a €5,000 cash prize, having entered a competition open to customers of Bank of Ireland with a GoalSaver account, designed to support those saving regularly towards achieving specific goals.

Following a presentation of the prize-winning cheque at his local Bank of Ireland branch in Midleton, John plans to put his winnings towards an exciting trip. John originally opened a GoalSaver account with Bank of Ireland to save for a rainy day and with his winnings can now visit family; “I'll use the money to visit my grandson in New Zealand.”

Peter McLaughlin, Product Manager, Bank of Ireland Investment Markets said, “The GoalSaver account was launched last year and is one of our most popular with customers saving for a specific goal in mind. We are thrilled to give five lucky winners a boost to their savings goal this month. As part of the GoalSaver account, customers are encouraged to calculate how much they need to save each month to reach their savings goal, whether it is for a new car, further education or, in John’s case, a family reunion.”

GoalSaver facilitates monthly savings from €20-€2,000 and customers can avail of a useful online calculator which appears within the online account opening journey and tells customers how much they need to save towards their target objective. Customers can set up an account online and pay their direct debit from any Republic of Ireland current account.
