Here’s the wedding selfie that earned this proud dad the trip of a lifetime in our great competition. Robert Carley’s snap of himself and daughter Debs moments before he gave her away to new husband Daniel Malone scooped him the top prize.

A few weeks ago we teamed up with the Mooney Show, Sunway Holidays and Sutter Home to bring you the Mooney ‘Selfie’ competition. We asked you to send us your favourite selfies and you didn’t disappoint. We got famous selfies, pet selfies, food selfies, beach selfies and even a few ‘belfies’.

The amazing prize from Sunway Holidays, Ireland’s largest 100 per cent  Irish-owned tour Operator, with over 70 destinations worldwide, includes a stay at the Westin Verasa Napa Valley, California, for five nights for two people plus two nights at Sutter Home winery, a VIP wine tour and tasting, dinner at the Sutter Home winery, transfers to/from San Fran and six bottles of Sutter Home White Zinfandel.

This week the Sunday World joined Brenda Donohue from the Mooney Show as she surprised Robert at his home in Raheny, Dublin. Robert’s daughter Debs got married six weeks ago in St Mark’s church Dublin. As you would expect, it was always going to be an emotional one but for proud dad Robert, there was something even more poignant – sadly, Robert’s wife Jean passed away unexpectedly at the age of 49 in 2011. Robert promised himself that every time he felt tearful on his daughter’s wedding day, he would take a ‘selfie’. (As you can imagine he had hundreds) and even produced a selfie calendar from the day.
