THE BREHON is one of Ireland’s top wedding venues having recently scooped a commendation at the Weddingsonline Awards 2017.

The commendation for Best Wedding Venue in Munster was announced at a glitzy blacktie gala ceremony in Clontarf Castle on Monday night, hosted by actress and Dancing with the Stars contestant Aoibhín Garrihy and sponsored by wedding planning software Moposa.

Over 30,000 couples voted for their favourite suppliers and venues in a range of categories, which were then judged by a panel of digital marketing professionals and wedding industry experts. The judges this year were Sara Kennedy, sales and marketing specialist and wedding blogger for IrishWeddingBlog.ie, Mark Richardson, Ireland’s leading sales and communication skills expert, Ciamh McCrory, digital and communications guru and Laura Holland, Entertainment Editor for Her.ie.

The 33 categories in the Weddingsonline Awards included a range of wedding services offered to engaged couples nationwide, from venues to bands, to stationery and photographers. The country’s top wedding businesses and services gathered at the much anticipated event to celebrate the winners.

“We would like to thank everyone that voted for us and of course the panel of judges,” said Kelly Ann, wedding co-ordinator at The Brehon, “The standards at this level are incredibly high and we delighted to be recognised as one of best wedding venues in Ireland.”

Laura’s new look for Leaving Cert

NEW LOOK: Laura Cronin, who is currently sitting her Leaving Cert, cut 14 inches off her hair for The Rapunzel Foundation.

By Michelle Crean

Rathmore’s Laura Cronin headed into her Leaving Cert exams this week with a whole new look after transforming her hairstyle for charity.

Laura, daughter of Una and Donal from Rathbeg, cut 14 inches off her hair for The Rapunzel Foundation.

As her long locks didn’t get cut over the last year Laura decided to get a good chop in Katelynn’s Hair Design in Rathmore instead, and use the left over hair to create wigs for sick children.

“I thought, rather than trim it I’d cut a lot off,” Laura, who hopes to study pharmacy in college, told the Killarney Advertiser. “I wanted to cut off a lot of it, I was sick of long hair. I said that if there’d be enough I’d donate it as it’d be a shame to see it on the floor.”

Laura said that hopefully it can make a child happy if it allows them to receive a specially made wig for their First Holy Communion, or a similar occasion.

“I’d encourage anyone who has long hair to think about what they could do with it.”

Kodaline to play stripped down Killarney gig

Published

By Michelle Crean

One of Ireland’s best known bands – who have had their recently released studio album streamed more than 60 million times – as well as reached 100 million YouTube views – are set to come to Killarney.

Kodaline will play their first ever stripped down fully acoustic tour on December 4 in the Gleneagle INEC Arena, which is part of a nationwide tour across the country.

Tickets went on sale yesterday (Friday) from the www.inec.ie.

‘One Day At A Time’ is the band’s fourth album, and adds a new chapter to a career that has already encompassed three number 1 albums in Ireland, two Top 5 albums in the UK, and more than a billion streams at Spotify. Kodaline approached the album with a streamlined process that took them back to their roots. The majority of the sessions revolved around the four band members alone in their modest recording space in Dublin, with bassist Jason Boland leading the production side of things.

CAREER

In 2019, Kodaline played some of the biggest shows of their career. At home in Dublin they sold-out two huge outdoor shows at St Anne’s Park, while a 10-date UK tour culminated with a packed show at London’s historic Roundhouse. Further afield, they hit festivals including Lollapalooza, Benicàssim and Open’er before becoming the first Irish band to headline the massive NH7 Weekender in Pune, India. Their extensive touring throughout Asia also included a headline set at Monsoon Music Festival in Vietnam plus dates in China, Japan, South Korea, The Phillippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Taiwan and Singapore.

“We’re excited to do our first ever stripped down fully acoustic tour, it’s something we’ve wanted to do for a long time and something that’s gonna be very special for us. Hope to see you guys there,” the band said.
