The couple who put up their Malahide home and property as the prize in an essay writing contest announced via Facebook on Thursday, May 1 that the second round had ended without a winner.
“It is with regret that we inform everyone that our Essay/Story contest did not meet the required number of entries to facilitate the awarding of the house,” the Facebook posting stated.
“The second round only had 1,083 entries,” the post continued. “For legal reasons, the contest could not have been extended or altered in any way. There will NOT be a third try at this.”
