Carlton on Breakfast with Hector
Last weekend Dublin took on Kilkenny in the Leinster Hurling Semi-Final and despite Dublin gaining an early lead they didn’t manage to keep up the momentum. Kilkenny were on top form and gained a strong lead on Dublin after two goals in the first half. The Cats eventually beat the Dubs 2-21 to 0-09 and will now go on to play my home county Galway in the Leinster Final.
In Carlton news this week we have been very busy with our Mini Explorers campaign as we continue with the relaunch for the summer. This week we are running a promotion with Hector’s Breakfast Show on 2fm, giving away a family break every day on the show. Each day this week we have given away a five night family break worth €1,500 at different Carlton Hotels in Ireland. Plus the week will end with Hector broadcasting live from the Carlton Shearwater Hotel tomorrow where he will be giving away the final family break. If you’re in the area make sure to call in for a bit of breakfast as I’m sure there will be plenty to see. I’m not going to make it myself but our Director of Sales & Marketing, Jean O’Connell, will be writing a guest blog tomorrow to fill you in on how it went.
Although they missed out on a Leinster title for Hurling, Dublin will have another chance at the Leinster final as they take on Wexford in the Football Championship on Sunday. My focus on Sunday will be on my adopted county Kildare as they take on Meath. Kildare have been playing well lately and have a strong team this year so I’m hoping they’ll be on top form on Sunday as they take on Meath.
Make sure to tune into Hector tomorrow to listen to the live broadcast from the Carlton Shearwater Hotel!
