Terence Bishop and Amy Coleman of Phoenixville won a free trip to Ireland on St. Patrick's Day as a result of their participation in the annual St. Patrick's Day Boot Camp conducted on Wednesdays and Thursdays at both Sly Fox Brewhouse & Eatery in Phoenixville and Sly Fox Brewery & Restaurant in Royersford for the ten weeks leading up to the big day.

The couple were in attendance at Phoenixville when the winning ticket was drawn at Royersford on the first try. "I didn't even know it was drawn at the other pub," said Bishop the day after. "My wife was checking the numbers and when they went up on the board, we, and everybody else, just went crazy."

Participants in Boot Camp received tickets for each night they attended. Winners of the Ireland trip and other prizes must be in attendance at one of the pubs in order to claim their prizes. Tickets from both sites are mixed together and divided between locations and are drawn alternately at each site which are in telephone communication.

Bishop and Coleman have lived in this area for roughly a year and a half and he says "I go to the Phoenixville pub several times a week." She is in the Marketing Department at Cabrini College in Radnor while he works from home, selling music and books from his eBay store. "I was working at, an eBay company in Conshohocken, and when they cut back on the staff and I was let go, I figured I use what I'd learned. So far, it's been going pretty well."

Bishop has never been out of the U.S. before other than a visit to Canada, but his wife has been to Ireland in the past. "We're thinking about going over in the fall at this point," says." We've already talked to some people who were there recently and they said the weather was nice then and it wasn't over-crowded with tourists.
