Well, tonight is the night…. Ciara faces into the infamous Dragons from the Den. Gavin Duffy blogged recently “Ciara Crossan makes one of the better Den Presentations, so good she gets a job offer but will she get an investment? All will be revealed Thursday at 10:15pm on RTE1”I will post my thoughts on the Den experience over the weekend, but for today at least I am sworn to secrecy.
Was delighted to see a mention of WeddingDates. ie on The Cork News last week, we are in great company with some of the other heavy hitters in the online community:PuddleDucks, BubbleBrothers and Sabrina Dent all get a mention too – well done guys. The Cork News is a really informative weekly for the Cork Region.
The Irish heats for the 2010 Wife Carrying Championships in Finland were held last weekend in Sneem, Co. Kerry as part of the Sneem Family FestivalNaturally, the weddingdates. ie team were out in force and James and Ciara managed to improve their time to 1 minute 38 seconds.
I am still reeling from the success of the Wife Carrying in Finland, both as a competitor on the Irish Relay Team, but also as a publicity stunt for the business, we have been featured heavily in both the Irish and International Media this week and I am truely delighted with the coverage we have received.
It’s a great day when a prestigious Irish Glossy Magazine calls to ask your input on an article they are putting together and that’s exactly what happened to me 2 weeks ago when the Irish Tatler got in touch regarding an article on wedding venues. I was delighted to contribute and I put together a piece for them on “The New Irish Bride” and the types of venues that people might be looking for.
