Carlton Group in Cornell
This week the Carlton Group went stateside as three of our managers travelled to Cornell University in New York! Declan Curtis & Eveanna Ryan from the Carlton Blanchardstown and Barry Kilroy from the Carlton Shearwater Hotel were there for one of their modules on Fáilte Ireland’s Executive Management Programme. The programme is now in its eighth year and is designed in conjunction with Cornell University. At the Carlton Group we have seen many of our employees, at both group and hotel levels, complete this course over the eight years and it has been a real benefit to them and to us as a hotel group. I’m looking forward to seeing what this year’s participants have learned and how they apply it to their hotels.
In other Carlton new this week, the Carlton Blanchardstown Hotel had a wedding experience evening last night and from what I’ve heard it went very well. They had plenty of really interested brides to be and they also took some bookings on the night for weddings later this year and early next year. If you’re planning a wedding in Dublin make sure to keep an eye out for their next event or visit their website for information on their wedding packages.
Looking ahead to this weekend we have the Heineken Cup semi-final clash tomorrow between Munster and Clermont. I wish the Munster boys the best of luck and hopefully they’ll beat Clermont and make it through to the final. Speaking of finals; Dublin will take on Tyrone this Sunday in the Allianz Football League at Croke Park. Either way it should be a great game but I’m hoping Dublin will be the better team on the day.
Well that’s it from me for another week – I hope you all have a great weekend!
