However circumstances kept getting in the way as hard working Denney is out on the roads delivering for Guinness most days.
So, the Tralee native enlisted the help of Three Ireland and Denney's sporting hero Ronan O' Gara.
As part of their Christmas campaign, 'The Perfect Surprise', Three arranged for O' Gara to catch Denney on his busy route and present him with a pair of tickets for the Ireland v England Six Nations clash at the Aviva stadium in 2015.
His reaction is one of shock and pure joy and Elaine gets a well deserved hug and kiss from Dad for her efforts.
Let's hope they thoroughly enjoy their day at the match.
