A Limerick mother had her Christmas wish come true after a wait of 47 years.

And to celebrate the season of goodwill, One4all has fulfilled a number of these special wishes, starting with Michelle Dowling and her mum Tess Lynch from Co. Limerick.

Michelle has always wanted to treat her hard-working mum to a day focused solely on her, to be treated like a queen.  Working seven days a week, Tess runs her own business with her husband, and hasn’t stayed in a hotel since their wedding day 47 years ago!

Michelle wanted to thank her Mum for everything she has done and sought the help of One4all, Ireland’s leading gift card company to help make this wish come true.

Her Christmas wish was to bring her mother from Limerick to Dublin for a day of five-star treatment. Michelle and Tess were treated to an overnight stay in a top Dublin hotel and after an evening of indulgence, Tess was given the VIP treatment with an exclusive Personal Shopper experience along with a €500 One4all Gift Card to splurge on herself and add a touch of glamour to her winter wardrobe. Tess was given a fancy new do’ for the festive season and a makeover to complete the finished look.

“When I was told I was going to Dublin and staying overnight, I couldn’t believe it!” said Tess.

“This is my first break away in 47 years and it really was a wish come true. We had a beautiful meal, stayed in the most luxurious hotel and I was also treated to a shopping spree and a makeover. It has really been a fantastic experience!”
