CHRISTMAS is definitely one of my favourite times of the year, especially in recent years with the arrival of our four wonderful grandchildren who will be joining us for the festive celebrations.
We are still working flat out for the Mid-West Bridal Exhibition which takes place in Limerick’s UL Sports Arena on January 10 and January 11. I would like to thank all the exhibitors from the city and county for supporting this event and we are all really looking forward to it.
I then plan to sit back and have a glass or two of wine on St Stephen’s night and watch the two hour special of Downton Abbey. All of the Oxendale ads which air at the start of the programmes were filmed in Adare Manor and I was thrilled to play some small part in them. I can’t thank Anita of the manor enough for all her help during the filming and for looking after the TV3 crew and Oxendales staff so well.
On a personal note, throughout my career opportunities have arisen and up at the top of my list has to be the Downton Abbey ads for Oxendales. I hope that you all enjoy them on St Stephen’s night on TV3.
From myself and my family I wish you all a very happy Christmas and a healthy New Year.
