A kind-hearted man who raised €14,000 for the family of tragic Thiago Cortes is giving away a stunning Dubin penthouse for just €58.

Thiago, 28, died from injuries sustained after he was knocked down while cycling at North Wall Quay in August 2020.

John Goodwin said the incident, which happened close to his home, hit him hard and made him realise that "life can end in a flash".

He set up an online fundraiser for Thiago's fiancé, helping her and his family with the funeral costs.

The Mayo man who lived in Dublin added: "I felt that it was time to make some radical changes in my life and make a base in my native Mayo. During lockdown, I was faced with the unique challenge of selling my Dublin property that could not be visited or viewed by potential buyers.

"In addition, I didn’t want my beloved property simply to go to the highest bidder. Investment funds and cuckoo funds are snapping up property in the Docklands and it’s just not for me."

Now John is giving one lucky person the chance to win his stunning three-bedroom, three-bathroom penthouse apartment in the Docklands area of Dublin City Centre, for as little as €58 - the price of a train ticket from Kerry to Dublin.

The fully furnished penthouse which is located close to the Samuel Beckett Bridge is the epitome of luxury living.

The prize apartment is a large light-filled space with loft-like ceiling heights and full-length windows.

It was recently renovated by Goodwin, who used the natural light and airy layout to create a modern sophisticated home that is in walk-in condition.

This penthouse was also the winning property on the hit USA TV show "House Hunters International".

Here is how you purchase a ticket to the raffle.
