Celebrities in Castletroy!

2010-11-18 12:30:00

Yesterday was a busy day for the Carlton Castletroy Park Hotel and although I wasn’t available to make it down I heard all about what went on! Last night the hotel hosted Alan Quinlan’s book launch, an event that seemed to be attended by the whole of Limerick! Not surprising though considering Alan is, in many people’s opinion, one of the greatest rugby players of all time. The chance to meet a brilliant Munster player was not something the people of Limerick were going to pass up. Not only did plenty of the locals turn up but Alan also brought along some of his famous rugby playing friends. The evening was a great success and Alan took the time to sign a copy of his book for everyone that wanted one.

It was great to see such a major event taking place in one of our hotels especially as most of the staff are huge rugby supporters! Especially Fiona O’Shea, the deputy general manager, who was lucky enough to get her photo taken with Alan. Alan was not the only celebrity around Castletroy this week as one of Ireland’s best known musicians was also in the hotel. Paddy Moloney from the Chieftains was giving a lecture at the Irish World Academy of Music & Dance in UL and he stayed in the Carlton Castletroy Park Hotel.

Tomorrow night the Carlton Hotel Tralee are hosting the Rotary Club of Tralee’s annual ball in aid of the ‘Pat Healy Orphanage India’. The event is sold out for the first time in years and they are delighted welcome Rose of Tralee, Clare Kambametta, as their guest of honour. I’m not able to make the event myself but I wish them the best of luck with it and hopefully they’ll raise plenty of money for such a great cause.

Another event tomorrow is the launch of the Christmas German Markets in Eyre Square which will run from tomorrow until the 19th of December. I’m hoping I’ll get the chance to go across to Galway to see the markets as with 70 stalls, all housed in specially made wooden cabins, it should be definitely worth a visit!
