New Dublin Rose

2012-05-21 16:00:00

The Dublin Rose selection night was on at the Carlton Hotel Blanchardstown at the weekend and the hotel was buzzing with excitement as a result! As I’m a judge for the Rose of Tralee Festival I can’t be involved in any of the other selection nights so I wasn’t at the hotel myself but from what I’ve heard it was a great night. On behalf of the Carlton Hotel Group I would like to congratulate Arlene O’Neill who was chosen as the 2012 Dublin Rose. I look forward to getting the chance to meet Arlene in August during the Rose of Tralee Festival.

Now that it’s May the Rugby season is coming to an end but the GAA season is only just beginning. And we had a great start to the season for my home county Galway when we took on Roscommon on Sunday. Galway had a great win with the final score standing at 3-15 to 10 points and they will now go on to meet Sligo at Pearse Stadium in two weeks' time. Hopefully they will have a repeat performance of last weekend!

Along with the GAA this Summer we also have the chance to cheer on the boys in green in the Euros in June. Although the official competition doesn’t start until Poland in June, Ireland are playing in a friendly match on Saturday against Bosnia-Herzegovina. It might only be a friendly but to the Irish fans it’s a chance to cheer on their team at home in the Aviva as many of them won’t make it to Poland. I’m not sure if I’ll make it to the match but I’ll be supporting our team from home if I don’t!

We have a busy week ahead of us here at the Carlton Group so I’ll be back on Friday with another update!
