On last Wednesday 5th July 2006 Ireland West Airport Knock
celebrated its four millionth passenger. To mark this occasion, unsuspecting
holidaymaker Mary Croghan from Castlerea, Co. Roscommon travelling on Mayo
Travel's charter to Crete was surprised with a shopping spree and holiday gift
voucher after checking in.

Mary and her party of seventeen holidaymakers were whisked through to the
newly expanded airport shop where they were greeted by Midwest Radio’s Paul
Claffey to play "The Airport Generation Game." Mary was shown a fabulous array
of forty products from leading giftware, cosmetics and airport travel brands
from the airport travel shop such as Waterford Crystal, L’Oreal, Hugo Boss,
Lacoste, Lily O’Brien's, Timex and Guinness.

With forty seconds on the clock,
Mary had to recall as many products as she could from the list live on radio.
What she could remember she would win! With a little help from Paul and her
friends, a delighted Mary claimed all forty prizes even the infamous cuddly toy!
Patricia Ronane, MD of Mayo Travel also presented Mary with a €200 euro travel
