Now search is on for Dad of the Year

The Derry Journal, in association with The City Hotel, are launching our inaugural, ‘Dad of the Year’ competition.

We are asking, “Is your father the best Dad in the North-West?”

Does your Daddy deserve some some five star treatment for always being there, always knowing the right thing to say?

If so then, in 50 words or less, please tell us how and why he should be named ‘Dad of the Year 2012’.

The best entries will be printed in The Derry Journal of Friday, June 8, with a public vote deciding the winner.

So show ‘yer Da’ just how you feel about him and nominate him. It couldn’t be simpler, all you have to do is complete the entry form attached and return it, along with a photo of your Dad, to the address provided.

The lucky winner will be awarded Belleek Living Mother of Pearl tie pin and a matching pair of cufflinks (pictured).

In addition the number one Dad in these parts will also be awarded some Father’s Day top treatment at Thompsons Restaurant, The City Hotel.

Thompson’s Restaurant is the perfect place to treat your dad this Father’s Day. Father’s Day lunch includes four courses for only £16.95 per person. A kids’ menu is also available. To book tel 02871365800.

Please remember entries are not valid unless accompanied with a photograph of the nominated Dad.
