Today Competition

This Thursday afternoon on Today, we have a Halloween themed, fun competition for you at home!

To celebrate Halloween and all things ghostly, this week on Today we're playing 'Pick Up a Pumpkin' and are looking to give you the chance to win the jackpot prize of €2,000.

Later this evening, we'll be calling the lucky winner live on-air and you can then choose which pumpkin contains either €1,000 or the jackpot prize of €2,000 - it's either in the pumpkin belonging to Dáithí or the one belonging to Maura - who holds the jackpot?... YOU decide!

So, whether you feel like a nice break from those dreaded bills, or trick/treating the family... or better yet - treating yourself to a nice Bank Holiday break... then this is indeed the prize for you!

For a chance to play 'Pick Up a Pumpkin', answer today's question and call or text the numbers below:
